Babylon Berlin; Revisiting Hoffmann’s Tale
Perspex, ceramic, plastic, plywood 120 × 80 × 130 cm (each object)
The installation explores differing points of view, parallax and time, in a narratively driven, theatrical space, which reflects on the human relationship with
inanimate objects, with reference to Hans Poelzig’s Großes Schauspielhaus (1919). In parallel, the project looks at themes such as automata, dolls and the
nature of the body, a preoccupation seen in E. T. A. Hoffmann’s Sandmann, and the character of Olimpia, on whom the project’s narrative is based.
