Daniel M.E. Schaal
In this act of repetition, it is the autobiographical that is transformed into something socially available. And through the ritual of repetition, it is as if any distinction in status between subject and object is abolished. Through the ritual of repetition and the multi-layered superimposition of the same motif, a symbolic cycle between becoming and transience unfolds, a reflection on trace and meaning, on our actions in the public and private spheres.
In his work as an artist, Daniel M.E. Schaal replaces personal expression with performative imprinting. In this way, he creates a symbiosis between image and body that leads to the new aesthetic of an anthropological abstraction in order to sustainably investigate the impact of humans on the universe and the interaction between humans and non-humans.
