In her solo exhibition the viewing at the same in perspective, Dominique Hurth investigates the possible narrative enclosed in a particular form in space. From the oscillation of perspectives offered by a viewing device that manually shifted from a paper sketch from the 1930s into a three-dimensional replica, she questions the multiplication of images given by the sculpture, and the autonomy of the displayed artefact in relation to its caption.

Avant-gardist iconography and modernist exhibition displays by architect and designer Herbert Bayer are being actualised by the passing of a form into the reader’s eye: the investigation in words (text and material) of the grey area behind the reference.
