The creation of a huge indoor painting began on Wednesday in Berlin at a pop-up gallery at the Wittenberg platz square.
The artist Peter Lindenberg plans to complete the 360-square-metre panorama painting, entitled “Rien ne va plus...!?” (Nothing works anymore), on February 10.
At 120 metres wide and 3 metres high, the painting is intended to draw attention to today’s digital media reality.
“I want to transmit the virtuality of the media back into the visitors’ experiential reality and make it a sensual-visual experience with oversized drawings, sketches and collages’’, Lindenberg said.
The acrylic and charcoal painting shows his personal memories of real places such as the Great Wall of China, which Lindenberg combines with sequences from the history of film.
“Sometimes the themes mix within the drawing. I also try to represent the contrasts of the world that come together in my mind’’, Lindenberg said.
The artist often works with mostly large-format paintings and sculptures, which can be seen in exhibitions and collections in Europe, the United States and China. — dpa
