Glücksmonopol, sculpture, 215 cm, wood, motor, 2019

Das große Glücksrad ist so manipuliert worden, dass es durch das permanente Drehen nie bei Gewinnen oder Verlieren einrastet.


At times, human existence seems nothing more than a crapshoot, a roll of the dice, a spin of the wheel. If one is considered a winner or loser feels completely up to chance, subject to, confusingly, both system and chaos. Fortuna Wheel (2019) abstracts this uncertainty into a carnival game, the fortune wheel, showing that not only is this perspective of human potential highly suspect, the very mechanisms of the game are in question.
