  • Nacht und Träume

    I have written the last two lines from Franz Schubert’s lied Nacht und Träume (Night and Dreams) by hand with a graphite pen.  
    1. Kehre wieder, heil’ge Nacht! (Come back, holy night!)
    1. Holde Träume, kehret wieder! (Sweet dreams, come back!)
          Every mark has been photographed and then erased, the mark left on the paper after the erasing has also been photographed. The photographs all together create a composite of up to 1000 layers. This is a concealed conjuration wishing that the dreams should never come to an end. The lines also appear in a play by Beckett, called Nacht und Träume, where the actor hums the melody. 150x50 cm. (2015)
