Mortadella (Special Edition)
Meticulously Christoph Hänsli paints and works his way through 166 slices of a whole cut Mortadella, and not only that but each piece from front and back. In the end there are 332 paintings. Actually now everything would be covered. Not, however, that this sausage-sliced-world creates an almost hypnotic universe between meditative Mortadella Mandalas and the slow changing tenderpink constellations. An ontological approach to the being of a sausage.
The renowned, British writer John Berger has for the second time written an exclusive text examining Hänsli’s work.
