Rosarium / Lily Pond

Finest porcelain tableware from KPM, Royal Porcelain Manufacturer Berlin,
is broken to pieces.
8.2 ft  x  8.2 ft x 0.66 ft /  ca. 2.50 m x 2.50 m x 0,2 m.

Tableware which we use for the social tradition of eating together is broken to pieces.
Of the heaps of shards only a few ones were selected and delicately recomposed.

Alike blossoms with scattered petals, the ensemble alludes to lilies floating
on a pond or an architectural setting.

The purely white blossoms are razor-sharp
as if the roses are wearing their scars like thorns up front.

The idyllic setting reveals the signs of the undergone destruction.
