For her installation Sophie Reinhold makes use of the museum’s great and representative cupola hall to raise questions the painter is interested in.

The marble floor of the hall supports her choice of this exhibition room although it is far off a ‘white cube’. She was already fascinated by the gigantic marble quarries and the extracting of this material by man and machine since centuries during her stay at the Villa Romana in Florence.

This marble provided the raw material for magnificent artworks withstanding the test of time. At the same time this transformed landscape itself seems to be an image consisting of different layers and dimensions. The work produced by Sophie Reinhold examines formation, meaning and form of an image the artist extends into the room. This three-dimensional parkour – comprising paintings, objects and moving imagery – is dedicated to questions about how the production process of images and their perception in a room works.
