The Spectre, 2014
The Spectre, 2014, of the title refers to a secret sculpture – a sculpture that is not exhibited here and indeed which no longer exists. All that remains of the original sculpture is an empty plinth and 298 drawings that testify to its existence and gives us more than a good idea of what the sculpture looked like. Originally created for an exhibition at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich in 2014, the sculpture was kept in a locked room in the gallery for ten days and was drawn by 100 selected people - children and adults, amateurs and professionals. No photographs of the sculpture were allowed to be taken and it was subsequently destroyed, making the drawings seen in the exhibition is the lasting relic and only evidence of the work.
