multimedia projection- Berlin 2017
“In Maria Kossak’s artistic universe, the lustre of gold shimmers with an alternation of highlight and shadow. It is determined by opposition, reflecting polarity on both: material and spiritual level. In Kossak’s work, traces of life are infused with the artist’s image, suspended in the flickering instant that separates melancholy from joy.”  
Dr. Stephan von Wiese, curator.
