Pb_Cu time

ongoing since: 2021

Manuel Abendroth
Size: 100 x 100cm
Technique: lead, copper sheet, tape

Each work is based on a standard format of a 1x1m sheet of copper or lead

Like a diary, one painting, copper and lead, is realised every year.

Week after week, a strip of tape is randomly placed on a copper and lead sheet to prevent its oxidation. After a year, the 52 tapes are removed and their traces become visible. Exposed to air again, they begin to fade. It's a painting with time, a negotiation between the visible, the invisible and the things we remember. The work is a diary and a memory of what a painting could be.
