Ebba Bohlin: 1,5 x 2,1573733…

In several pieces, both in gallery exhibitions and in public art works, Ebba Bohlin uses references to her own body in site specific works. The numbers in  1,5 x 2,1573733… refers to the meassurements of her own body tranferred to a Square, where the sides relates to each other according to the  golden ratio. The piece is linked to both da Vinci and the renaissance and to the modernism and the minimalism. The piece exists in different versions.

At Multeum we will show a version that originally was made for the garden of Thielska galleriet outside Stockholm. She scanned the Surface of the garden and transferred it to plastic. The white cast was chosen as a reference to the death mask of Friedrich Nietzsche, on display inside the gallery.
