Stay awhile! You are so beautiful!
Officially anounced and authorized demonstration on Lenbachplatz. Installation with lion video loop 1:05 min. + demonstration signs, UNPAINTED goes Faustfestival, Munich, 2018.
A lion is eating contentedly and insatiable a piece of meat from a goat.
The demonstration signs form the sentence „Stay awhile! you are so beautiful!“ („Verweile doch! Du bist so schön!“)
This refers to Goethe‘s Faust, who - greedy and never satisfied - promised his soul to Mephisto, if he should say this sentence to the moment.
An unfulfillable wish.
As unrealistic as the never ending piece of meat of the lion.
As unrealistic as the demonstration against the passing of time..
