Stefanie Wilhelm - OSCILLATIONS
16.04. - 15.07.2018MuseumsQuartier, Museumsplatz 1, 1010 Vienna
A sea of white houses fluttering in the wind. Attached to the floor, grounded. Fixed in their center. They symbolize flexibility, openness and at the same time steadfastness. In its movement, every house has an innate character, an individual soul.
The harmonious appearance appears buoyant, at the same time – looking deeper – we find an emblem for people who bring changes to the world with these same characteristics.
How do we find our equilibrium when we are open and flexible, without losing our center and our anchoring?
While oscillating, do we succeed in maintaining our position among multiple requirements within and externally?
