Besitzarbeit X: Beweinung, 2004, installation view at Westfälisches Landesmuseum, Münster,
March 2004

The third piece based on art historical sources in the Besitzarbeiten series depicts a lifeless Christ lying crosswise and embraced in Mary’s lap, a gesture which the open wardrobe doors imply. The two are surrounded by a group of saints. The installation was freely positioned in the middle of the room, ensuring a view of the event from various angles. Stationed at Christ’s feet, the view upwards was reminiscent of Andrea Mantegna’s famed Lamentation of Christ.
