Knieholz (Kneeling logs)

2019 | sculpture, art objects | gold and gesso on wood, calligraphy, sgraffito, china ink

Knieholz (kneeling logs):
A series of instruments for meditation and atonement.
Recognise our sin. See the divine in the worm. Start making amend.
Pain is bliss.

Each Knieholz features a text, which is either written or engraved on the gold.
The texts on the kneeling logs are mantras that sound contemporary, although they are adaptations from ancient (mostly medieval) texts.
