TO BE AT HOME IN TIME – DAY 2021

This series was created in the midst of the pandemic out of the artistic examination of the theme, recurring rhythms of DAY and NIGHT. 

In a time when little has remained the same as before, this sequence and repetition, with their associated rituals and activities, were an important immovable constant that remained the same for all of us.

Rituals that follow the rhythms of time can be defined as symbolic techniques of accommodation. They transform BEING IN THE WORLD into BEING AT HOME IN TIME.

“Rituals make the world a dependable place. What an apartment is in space, rituals are in ‚time’. They make time habitable. Yes, they make it accessible like a house. You arrange the time, set it up. "

Byung Chul Han, The Disappearance of Rituals: A Topology of the Present 


Since 2012, Marie Ruprecht has devoted herself to abstract landscapes in recurring periods of time. Almost sculptural landscape paintings emerge from folds and structures of old linen like reliefs.

Wrinkles and folds become landscapes. Almost meditative, they tempt you to lose yourself in time.
