Single panel, from the overall project, “BREATHTAKING”.
124 panels of 40 x 40 x 4 cm each in the technique,
original print on acrylic and gold on wood
When COVID-19 erupted worldwide in 2020, the impression was that other weighty events were barely noticed in the media. ‘Breathtaking’ is the transformation of the Coronavirus into a golden ulcer. An ulcer, a substance effect that changed the structure of the world and the inside of humanity.
The artist Tanja S.F. Hoffmann has dissected this ulcer into 124 slices, placed them on panels, pictorially placed them in a temporal context and thus documented the pandemic from its inception to the Ukraine war.
The entire project was shown for the first time in November 2022 at KVFM – Kunstverein Familie Montez e.V./Frankfurt am Main.
