Veit Mette

BODY ART ME

In his work, Veit Mette (*1961) deconstructs and reconstructs imagery. For example, he projects photographs from the collections of Kunsthalle Karlsruhe and the Peter August Böckstiegel Museum onto heads and bodies which he presents both digitally and in physical exhibitions.

For his latest work, he visited a specialised facility for patients with eating disorders, the Klinik am Korso, to explore issues relating to our public image and self-image. Patients were asked to select images from the painting collection at Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, which were then projected onto their faces. Texts written by the men and women who were photographed accompany the images.
