Deadlock, 2019

painted stainless steel
each letter; 3×10 cm, installation dimensions are variable

Deadlock rings in our ears as the answer of Donald Rumsfeld to a question regarding the alleged weapons in Iraq in 2002, using the central column of the gallery and the words KNOWN and UNKNOWN revolving around it. Using the four-edged structure of the column, the words keep turning and turning around the edges within an endless cycle/chase. This cycle consisting of plus and minus poles opens the work to various combinations of reading.
