Spatial installation by Timm Ulrichs: Weights and Measures, 2008
Wordplay, wit and irony distinguish Timm Ulrichs’ ingenious oeuvre, which can be seen as in the tradition of Marcel Duchamp and Dada. The artist calls himself a “total artist” and enjoys creating works that transgress the boundaries of our social and aesthetic conventions.

Timm Ulrichs has developed the three-part installation “Weights and Measures” for MUSEUM RITTER. He has mainly taken historical works from the collection, and in this way paid homage to the pioneers of Concrete art. “My interpretation is also an act of reverence, which is why I have been fairly careful in how I have approached the works. I am not trying to expose them, to rob then of their glory, but to add something and broaden their meaning”, the artist said. The measurement relates both to the physical constitution of the works, which is to say their weights, their sizes, and their positions on the wall, as well as to their structure.

While the horizontality of the picture structures in one room is underlined by means of yellow spirit levels, in the other the plumb lines with black cords running down the sides of the works emphasizes their verticality. In the third section of the installation the artist determines the weight of the paintings by using a spring balance and verifies whether there is a relation between the real weight and the value of the pictures.
