Anja Eichler :  Concrete Fragility 

« a play with perceptions
 Concrete is a symbol of progress, strength and durability. The egg is a symbol of fragility, but as well of inception and growth. The result is concrete fragility.
 What does concrete fragility mean? Is it actual, tangible fragility, something on the verge of being crushed? Or is it concrete paired with a light and fragile object, making it heavy and strong?
 The new object eludes being juged by eysight, it needs to be touched and worn in order tofind out more.«

« In our life, we are surrounded by things that we use on a daily basis. These are common objects, disposable items or food. These things are so known to us that they do not bear any surprises.
​My work is about these common goods. It fascinates me that there is a lot to discover in this seemingly all too known field. All that is needed is leisure and something that I call a ‘loving eye’.  Prepared like this, one spots interesting surfaces, colors, shapes and much more. The ‘loving eye’ for these small things sparks off enthusiasm. And the enthusiasm is the incubator for seeing new potentials in the seemingly well known.
​​Especially intriguing for me is to set these goods, to which we have an already plugged in relationship, into a new association with us and our body. »
