With his first installation, the #FlowerSkullCemetery in Berlin, set up in a night and fog performance with 10,000 flowers, Tim Bengel once again attracted wide media attention.
Tim asks himself and the viewer "Why did(n't) I live?" and answers with 100 sayings.
The cemetery in Berlin was the prelude for Tim's vision:
"To create access to art for even more people".
The installation should ask questions. The "gravestones" in Berlin should polarize and stimulate reflection.
In the core it is about the own dialogue with oneself.
The reflection on one's own life.
Tim encourages reflection on life and combines this in an artistic overall project.
The stone tablets are each limited to 100 plates and work alone as a special art object.
The tablet can either be placed in a modern way on a shelf or in a room or you can hang it on the wall like one of his sand and gold paintings.
In any case, it is once again an innovative approach by this exceptional young artist. This time innovative in terms of the concept of an edition. Usually editions are published as prints in the fine arts. However, the work does not differ from each other in the respective edition. Only the indication of the edition e.g. 5/100 makes it clear which part of the edition this print represents.
Tim on the other hand uses the marble stone for his edition. Thus each part of the edition has a character of uniqueness, since the grain of the marble is different each time.
Each marble stone, with the respective engraved slogan, is refined with the specially developed Tim Bengel font and gold leaf.
The work of art is presented in a noble box, signed and provided with a certificate of authenticity.
