Peter Kogler

Financial Time, from I AM YOU Project, Austria, 1993

Silk screen, 170x120 cm

The ant serves as the principal icon in Peter Kogler's work.
By means of the ant and its representations, he takes the observer on an odyssey through large spaces where he inflates its presence in relation to man.

What is the status of the ant in this exhibition? Does it symbolize the working man? Or does it represent his traits – helplessness on the one hand, potency and considerable ability on the other?
