The tenth project for the SEVEN SCREENS, which is
to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the public art platform, is
dedicated to the human being. Herlinde Koelbl’s central theme is the
importance of seeing. Everything begins with a look at the world and a look at
one’s self: recognizing, perceiving, seeing, communicating. Her
installation „You have taken away my heart, with one look you have taken
it“ returns us to the origin of perception and the meaning of light,
which provides the basis for the SEVEN SCREENS. The title
of her installation was inspired by Solomon's Song of Songs.
