12 symbolises the wholeness of the zodiac and the number 6 the union in the sign of love. These 72 trunks form two concentric circles in the installation „round 72“, which again form a space of „emptiness“ in the middle as an essential. In various cultural circles, the number 72 has an important numerical symbolic meaning in connection with mystical and magical ideas. They are symbols and representatives with multi-layered interpretations. Symbols, however, acquire a double meaning in that they „reveal and conceal“ at the same time. The number 72 refers to the representation of a pentagram in a circle with 360 degrees. This five-pointed star is a symbol of the microcosm as the archetype of man.
