CORNELIUS KOLIG. ANLEITUNGEN AN DIE EWIGKEIT ODER/OR DON'T FUCK WITH PARADISE
Cornelius Kolig’s “paradise” could also be examined from above. One would see an organic building-structure comprising a Sistine chapel, a pantheon, cow and pig stalls, and “a wild intoxicating garden”. But Sasha Pirker does not even suggest such an overview in her portrait of the artist. Instead, right at the start of the work, she jumps straight into details of how he combines art and life: already in the opening credits she depicts in poetic, nearly still standing images, the atmosphere surrounding the building while the artist explains his first thoughts on a “buildable paradise” in the late 60’s.
