Emergency Box of L. J. J. Wittgenstein, 2010
book, colour pencil on paper
This work was made for an exhibition at Wittgenstein House- the Bulgarian Cultural Institute in Vienna. By receiving the invitation for the exhibition I immediately thought of Ludwig Wittgenstein`s life, an Austrian-British philosopher, who designed and built a house in Vienna for his sister in 1926. This is the reason why I created a work concerned with Wittgenstein’s Oeuvre. During my research I found a book called “Wittgenstein A graphic guide” by the authors John Heaton and Judy Groves. I started making pencil drawings of the people who had influence on his life and then inserted them between the pages of the book. Anyway, I wanted to have a minimum of components, so I designed a cardboard box for the presentation, in which everything fits together. A kind of an Emergency-Box.
