In the exhibition “Countenance Hermann Grid”, Stephan Janitzky and Laura Ziegler deal with the figure of the ornamental hermit, a must-have among wealthy park owners in Central Europe, especially during the 18th century. Over the years, this fashion for the “romantic pauper” proved too expensive, and so ornamental hermits were replaced by puppets and stiff, grotesque figures. In the exhibition, the duo transfers the baroque concept of the performing hermit to the Kunstpavillon, so establishing references to the still relevant theme of precariousness and self-exploitation in art and culture.
