Pandemic Pop Art
With the exhibition title "For reasons unknown to me" Marina Herrmann freely quotes the title of a work by Sigmar Polke: "Higher beings ordered: Paint upper right corner black! " (1969). Thus the question "What does the artist actually want to tell us with this?" is ironized.
Marina Herrmann's answer to the familiar question is: good art does not explain itself, it happens.
"For reasons I don't know," this thought of Marina Herrmann's about the beginning of work for her exhibition is found thrown down by a light hand on a scrap of handmade paper, together with color samples and the additions 'working title' and 'pandemic pop art'.
