Fabian Knecht in cooperation with Andreas Greiner ENTLADUNG, 2014 Aktion Chromira C-Print 120 x 80 cm
Andreas Greiner and Fabian Knecht’s intervention creates an ambivalent and wholly ambiguous aesthetic experience.
Their explosion (or representation of an explosion) shatters the routine of the day, provoking an exception, a temporary state of emergency. By causing a moment of irritation followed by reflection they make way for a different aspect of the every day, an aspect we prefer to ignore: the pain and beauty concealed in the blind spot of the present. Explosions are always in the “here and now”.
