Otto Hahn Oberschule, Berlin, DE 2006

A sculpture with extreme proportions is positioned in the light well of the entrance hall of the Otto Hahn Oberschule in Berlin. The figure of a girl has the imposing height of 11 meters with a body diameter of only 60 cm. The human body and the architectural construction body are here set in an absurd relation that is experienced intensely because of the sculpture’s vertical extensions into the individual storeys. The sculpture’s title and lineaments, the latter corresponding to the graphic asphalt lane of the entranceway, allude to the school’s emphasis on sports.
