Dagmar Vogt: Headstand
This artwork is part of our campaign "Perspective matters". With start'19 in mind, we asked artists what they saw in the apostrophe from our event logo – or if it even is an apostrophe in their eyes. The responses to this call for entries revealed a multitude of perspectives that we want to share with our readers. More information about the campaign can be found HERE.
Dagmar Vogt has turned her perspective upside down. "'Apostrophus' comes from Greek and means 'turned away'. My figure Headstand also turns away completely and thereby gains a new perspective ... The apostrophe is a sign for something left out, an interruption. Headstand also stands for an interruption of normal views and for another form of seeing", she says about her life-size bronze sculpture. What do you see in it?

As part of our campaign, we want to encourage everyone to look at their own perspective and maybe re-think it. While making such a small sculpture, you have the best opportunity to turn both things around: the paper sculpture and your own perspective ... we're curious to see what comes out of it!
