Sebastian Hertrich Figur

In his development man has received innumerable attributions to situate him again and again in his present existence. The life-size portrait of a young man made out of electric circuit boards is marking him as homo digitalis – a human machine in the age of digital evolution. Computer boards are completely covering his physical shape, so that the duality of corporeal analogue and digital immaterial appear as a unit through the body of man. He is the interface of these two spheres, which merge more and more with far-reaching consequences. The questions involved are hardly to answer because of their complexity, but that does not inhibit the general development of course, which shows us the artist impressively.

carved acrylic glass, computer mainboards

Sebastian Hertrich: Kreuz (1)

The death of jesus on the cross is a pivotal subject of the occidental-christian pictorial tradition. We see a modern adaption of his stature out of synthetic material on a cross out of circuit boards.Materials which illustrate the characteristics of an increasingly digital and artificial world where connections seem impalpable.
In front of this background the symbol of the crucified jesus appears as a memorial – a reference to the immediate experience of pain and the body in an unsensual space. Michael Merkel (art historian)
