"20.000 Ampère", Schwarz Contemporary, Berlin, 2014

    A cloud-to-ground discharge leaves behind two cores of a thunderbolt. Their residue covers the entire wall, they vary in depth and width. With the help of a hammer and a chisel they have been embedded into the wall. In some areas only the very top of the wall has been affected, in others the cores go deep down into the plaster and break it open. It seems as if the wall has been hit by lightning and is near collapsing.
