Print on flags
(template: oil crayons, colored pencils, ink)
5 flags, 90 x 150 cm each
For the flags in front of TROPEZ, Grit Burmeister and Franzi Kleinert depicted their perspective on the summer pool. Swimming pool means love, said Grit Burmeister when she heard about the TROPEZ project. She placed her unique images of people with oil pastels on Franzi Kleinert's extensive colored pencil weaves. Beings as if from another world look at us with big eyes and mouths wide open showing their teeth. For Burmeister, to show one's teeth means to defend oneself against exclusion and incomprehension. With colour fields and letters, Kleinert's drawings refer to summer.
