In three weeks, Bastian Muhr transformed the floor of the Kunsthalle Göppingen’s upper hall into a huge work of art – with a chalk marker. The abstract drawing was almost 500 square meters in size and formally recalled the shed roof of the Kunsthalle. Visitors had only a narrow corridor to walk around this work of art made of lines.
The catalogue that accompanies this exhibition also has an unusual format: a leporello 2.5 meters in length whose zigzag form reflects that of the floor drawing. The book offers various views of the work and, folded together, has a handy DIN A4 format. The book cover is a finely structured grey cardboard with a floor-like look. A transparent belly band with additional information holds the leporello together. The back cover is equipped with an inside pocket containing a booklet with the exhibition texts.
