Kirchliche Gassenarbeit Luzern (Ecclesiastical Streetwork Lucerne)
The association «Kirchliche Gassenarbeit» initiates and maintains services in the field of harm reduction. The focus lies on healthy nutrition, psychosocial counselling, basic medical care, support in coping with life and pastoral care.   For almost 40 years, the personnel of the «Kirchliche Gassenarbeit» association have been working with professionalism and solidarity for socially disadvantaged people, especially those affected by addiction and poverty. 

Growing, never to stop
An exciting, unusual project - something I have never done before. Since I work with the medium of photography, I reflected beforehand on how I wanted to approach this project.  
Two years ago, I created an installation consisting of large-scale photographs for an exhibition. I printed the photos on garden fleece using the technique of transfer printing, which makes the photos shimmer through and allows them to be viewed from both sides. I wanted to work with this method for the ram project as well and printed several photos on garden fleece. On site, I then covered the ram with these prints. The result is a sculpture on which different places became visible. It was an exciting event where one had to remain very flexible while working. The unexpected had to be taken into account, which created new and exciting elements in the picture.

Ram for use inside and outside.
Size is approx. 75 x 40 x 68 cm (Width x Depth x Height) and weight is approx. 23 kg (ram + base).
