Tonio Kröner // Silhouettes


A dying tooth is constantly palpated by one’s tongue and examined with exaggerated movements while looking at it in the mirror. It feels allegorical, uncanny, and cartoonish. While daily life is perceived increasingly congruent with horror and caricature, gorily severed limbs and turning into cartoons are far from being new effects in bodies under abstraction. They are just more and more commonly experienced. How then express the waking dream of being simultaneously a constellation of estranged body parts and an extremely malleable, closed shape? This volume outlines these palpations and wry mirror angles in an assembly of paper and ink. It is published as part of the Arthur Boskamp-Stiftung Advancement Award 2014 to Tonio Kröner, being prequel, documentation, extension, and aftermath of the exhibition I Hate My Village, which took place at M.1 of Arthur Boskamp-Stiftung, Hohenlockstedt, 2014.
