“Drawing a Universe” presents drawings, objects and installations based on the process of sketching, drafting, mapping, copying, repeating and translating. Small or even minute elements are aligned in systematic rows or form complex systems that very much follow their own laws. The focus and the isolation of the tiniest detail exist in addition to the overall picture. These surreal “universes in a nutshell” do not follow a familiar scale. They oscillate between micro- and macro-cosmoses. They are the global landscapes of our age, so to speak, in which the call for universal visibility is becoming stronger and stronger while the processes that really determine what happens in the world occur on a level that most people are unable to perceive.
