About the work
The work is a triptych consisting of three collages (Grenzsprenger 1-3), which can but do not have to be hung together. Each collage can also be hung up on its own. The Grenzsprenger are part of a series of collages made of paper, all of which deal with overcoming boundaries and belong to the artist’s personal examination of Corona and the resulting restrictions.
In the picture, the black lines and the brown wrapping paper act as the boundaries that each individual has to deal with. The blue area is made of China paper, which Gramann dyed in this shade and, after drying, tore it out of a large piece of paper and collaged it onto the picture. The blue takes on the role of the border crosser or border sprinkler. Depending on the picture, this process of overcoming has already been completed or is still being carried out. All pictures are covered with a fine layer of paraffin wax.
