Helmut Stallaerts

(°1982, Belgium)
Um Mitternacht, 2011

In the piece 'Um Mitternacht' Helmut Stallaerts has assembled the mechanism of a clock inside of a box. In the lid of the box he builded in a painting which he made after an old photograph. Finishing off, he read a poem by the German poet Johann Goethe.

This poem embraced the feeling he had with this work so well, he used its titel for the art piece: 'At Midnight', the moment where all your senses are on edge.
