Concept, Text, Object:

Jens Höffken


I choose ten classic nudes of historical paintings. Five of the models wear pubic hair, five of them are shaven. Then I describe the pubic eminences: In words I represent the given nature and I invent short tales about the mannerism of each „hill“.

My descriptions appear as concrete poetry in the shape of the original sections. Through the transparent letters the original painting is (from a distance) clearly visible. From near the impression of text dominates.
