The sculpture ‘Alias’ by Miriam JonasThe sculpture ‘Alias’ seems like a strange indefinable creature. It was created for the Orangery Palace Rheda by Miriam Jonas. In forty seconds rhythm the structure made of transparent PVC is filled with air from a blower. Once the fan is turned off, air escapes from the Sculpture and almost breathing, it seems as if it is has come to life. Miriam Jonas refers to the special history of the former Orangery, where exotic plants and animals were grown only a few hundred years ago. They were placed in so-called magical cabinets on display. To Miriam Jonas it is important to include the building, in which she displays her work, in her creative process: ‘The architecture remains dominant, but doesn’t dominate the artwork. So it is also a kind of metaphor for how the passing time changes things, places and their meaning’.
