Zuflucht bei Gott was the title of an article in the weekly german magazine Die Zeit: A village in the mountains of Switzerland was cut off due to heavy rainfalls.The people from the village and tourists took refuge in a monastery of Benedectines. The article was accomplished by an image which has shown people on a hill waiting for the rescue helicopters. Since the “naughties” disastrous floods in central Europe became more and more attention in the general public awareness as consequences of climate change. In Konstellation i covered an inkjet print, which shows a b/w reproduction of the image, with blue colored but transparent epoxy. The image under epoxy is still decipherable under certain visibility conditions, but it is also be intended as an abstraction of the original image. The presentation of the piece in three parts like an altar blackboard tries to reference a flood as an unforeseen circumstance or force majeure but at the same time as an proclamational gesture for attention.
