Largo by Christian Lemmerz

Too simple

Art Review

Rating 2 out of 10

It seems that the major inspiration for this instalation is the dark side of romanticism, that is gothic horror. Christian Lemmerz is in this instalation working on the death theme. Like a Duchamp readymade he has produced an exact copy of a coffin and a shovel. Then there is some reliefs which he calls graves and they look like black-brown earth. But is seems to me that Lemmerz is sophisticating too little, the work is too close to reality.
