Artist list

Marianne Schliwinski
The first time the installation had been shown at the „Pacific Security Gallery“ in Costa Mesa, CA, USA in 1990. The second time was at 1994 at Galerie Wassermann in Munich, for this exhibition Marianne developed a multiple to this theme.
„Der Schatten der Wahrheit“ 1994, Box covered with red linen, inside a heart from bronze, red lacquer, covered with gold leaf and banded, behind a square mirror with a black papier mâché circle on it.

The installation was made under the influence of the enthusiasm of the reunion in Germany in 1990. It is a critical view on this enthusiasm with all the resentments and fears the artist had in this time. As we can see today, trough the development of the society, the rebirth of a new right wing with strong fascist tendencies, the critical point of view was right.


The original version of the installation is completed by a wall object, black, red and gold panel with an in between picture of the pin of the former „Luftbrücke“  together 60 x 100 cm. It is in a private collection and could not be lent, therefore now two Diasec  „American Dream“ 2005, 100 x 64 cm, and „Rovereto Manifesta - selfportrait“ 2007, 18 x 18 cm are added to it.
