inges idee Personal Absurdities: Hans Hemmert’s Level

Level by Hans Hemmert (1997, Styrodur/Rubber/Velcro, variable dimensions) is an installation, or performance if you will, in which the visitor could, according to his or her lenght, choose the suitable shoe-height in order to get a 2 meters body height. FUN! #wecanallbebasketballplayers

inges idee are the artists Hans Hemmert, Axel Lieber, Thomas A. Schmidt und Georg Zey, who have worked jointly on projects in public space since the group was founded in Berlin in 1992. Along with works carried out in the group, all members are active in their own individual artistic practice. In 1997 Hans Hemmert created “Level” (Styrodur/Rubber/Velcro, variable dimensions) which was shown at the exhibition “Personal Absurdities” at Galerie Gebauer Berlin 1997 (credits; http://ingesidee.de/page.php?pgid=74&lang=en)(images via core77.com)
