David Hepp


The annual edition by David Hepp, ausfeilen, reveals its complexity at a second glance. Initially resembling a conventional stone, the smooth, polished reclining surface reveals the prior history of the object, and with it the deconstructive moment contained within.

Hepp uses the multidimensional nature of the fossil-rich limestone from southern Germany, which in this case was first made into a conventional windowsill with a polished surface, and chisels the stone-shaped objects out of it. His workmanship now endows them with both a new form, and one of their possible past forms. ausfeilen stimulates a confrontation with the value of artworks and natural objects, and tales up specific characteristics of the material, such as its malleability and temporality.
