Vital Use 09

In the same way as Asger Jorn and Joseph Beuys, Rosemarie Trockel shows the art work as a confirmation of life from the essential source of life. The expansion of life is the aim of an artistic production which handles sources and resources consciously and critically. In John Ruskin's works production, product and consumption from a triangle with life at the centre. In Rosemarie Trockel's vital work concept the expansion of life is the aim of a production which flows into life. Life flows into the production in exactly the same way. In the midst of the triangle of production, product and consumption life constitutes the centre. "My heart feels the joy in flowers and I love to listen to their mysteries".

(Hans-Ulrich Obrist)
