For the action of the Kunsthalle Bremen, a work of art with household objects was to be reconstructed from its inventory. I decided for the oil painting on canvas "Die Fischverkäuferin" (The Fish Lady) by Aline von Kapff from 1877. 

 

To my delight, my reconstruction, along with 76 other great reenactments, was selected in the Kunsthalle to complement its new permanent exhibition. The exhibition shows us how people can interact with art and the institutions in times of the Corona crisis, when there is a social lack of cultural activity.  

 

In order to convert a painting convincingly in another medium, it is necessary to memorize the essential features of the original, to concern the details and to research what the respective painting meant to the artist himself and what we make today - usually hundreds of years later - from their original.
