Ignis Fatuus Apeldoorn (NL) 2016

7 statues: 3,30 m x 1 m x 1 m

 

Nietzsche would no doubt argue that an encounter with the ignis fatuus is inescapable in the course of attempts at human self-realization.

 

The inspiration for the statues was the local saga about a horseman, in which the rider in the forest of Apeldoorn was misled by a wandering light. The ‘Ignis Fatuus’ is used as a statue for transformation in the visual art like, Anselm Kiefer, Louise Bourgeois, Vincent van Gogh, Willem Elsschot en Goethe. The statues from Margot Berkman are solidified memories from the good light. They show you the way. 

 

Philosopher and curator Karja Rodenbrug curated the exhibition  ‘Wandering further, wandering light, about Ignis Fatuus and Orpheus.’
