Art-Fair Visitors 1:7,7 ... Unlimited2001
ART' 32 Basel
Plaster material, pigment (chromium-oxide-hydrate green)
The Unlimited project, developed by Karin Sander for the ART' 32 Basel, brings together at a single point in time the most heterogeneous epochs and subjects from the history of art. Sander's sculptures relinquish control over the forms and postures of the people reproduced here (on a scale of 1:7.7...) – on the one hand to the subjects themselves and on the other to the disinterested, infinitely precise eye of the digital camera that scans them. Thus Unlimited is indeed a conceptual work, but it is one that both incorporates classical sculptural themes such as portraiture and self-portraiture and also constitutes a (three-dimensional) photograph – and thus a figurative sculpture.
