The Strong Consumer
A Project by Stephanie Senge
01.06.2008 – 22.06.2008

In the exhibition, along with seven parade sculptures, Ikebana works by the artist will be shown. Senge learned the art of Ikebana floral design in Japan and uses its principles to make products from materials bought at discount department stores. Her aim is to give a certain value to mass-consumed articles that are otherwise not highly regarded. In this, the technique of Ikebaba ennobles the consumer goods. A responsible handling of the goods is thereby demonstrated and a model of the ”strong consumer“ exemplified. The consumer parade and symposium will be shown as a documentary video in the exhibition.
