Girls are not able to paint cars

Denise Ziegler

A postcard-sized image of a racing car has been painted repeatedly onto a canvas in a grid formation. The place where the final image would be remains unpainted. Into this empty space a film is projected which reproduces the paintings in the order in which they were made. The installation visualises difference and changes that may exist between almost identical individual images.
