  • Catalogue Essay

    Turning her gaze inwards, Grünstein used her local environment – her own studio – to create this surreal image. Confined to a corner of a barren room, a strange flesh-coloured figure disappears into its own body. In making visible what it is like to be human, Grünstein is concerned with feelings and emotions, rather than with actuality and documentation. Her metaphorical interpretation is full of ambiguities. The viewer is left to decipher the meaning behind the ballooned kneeling figure.
