Horst Weierstall

Artist: Horst Weierstall (Germany)

Title: Navigatio now and then

Medium/technique(s): Xeroxed text on transparent paper, string

Edition size: 1

Artist Statement: The work is based on Boccaccio’s lovestory: Cymon and Iphigenia (Decameron, Day 5, story 1). The text stands for complex social and human conditions, a personal love story, where passion and pride dominate within a context of early capitalism, crisis and revelation.
