Built in two different rooms, the installation explores the concept of “corruption” and its different meanings.
In the first room – the toilet – the visitor’s image merges with the word “Korrupt” printed on mirrors. The game of reflexes absorbs him to the conceptual core of the installation: at this moment, he is the face of corruption.
The mirrors expel ink and the room/ toilet is reconfigured as a living, penetrable painting. In the second room the sentence
“What has escaped corruption is of extraordinary treasure” recovers the entire surface of the floor.
(“Was der Korruption entkommen ist, ist von außergewöhnlicher Kostbarkeit.”)
