Art Installation – Conception, Production, Visual Identity
RED DOT AWARD 2019 WINNER
“I love my stuttering” or “I love my very shy breasts” are just a few of the answers I have received to my question “What flaw do you love about yourself?”
Every human being has something that bothers him or herself - be it a physical characteristic or a certain quality. We are born with annoying flaws that seem to affect our attractiveness and sometimes our self-esteem.Our society is often solely responsible for the fact that we criticize certain characteristics and thus cast a shadow on these even before we can form our own opinion about them.
It is precisely these 'blemishes' that give us an identity, give us something unmistakable and do not allow us to disappear into a mass of people standardized according to ideals. Lieblingsmakel was meant to encourage people to accept their “flaws” and at best to love them and share them proudly with the whole world – for example on the BIX façade of the modern art museum in Graz, where the answers ran alternating with body images.
