TWO RED FLAGS, Ludwigskirche Munich, 2016
size: each 12m x 3m
material: print on fabric
The two flags are placed at the towers of the Ludwigskirche next to Munichs Ludwig Maximilians Univerity and the Ludwigstraße – one of the most frequented streets in the city. Through their signal effect and their monumentality, the flags are very attractive to look at. At the second sight the text placed on the flags asks “Are you keeping your eyes closed?” with the first flag and answers “Keep them shut” with the second. It is a mismatch of form and content. This work is a reference to the state between sleep and waking, the state of coincident consciousness and unconscious as a structure of constituting reality.
