Franziska Becher Portrait 2020
The photograph shows a self-portrait of the artist suffering from glaucoma. In the eyes of the artist, dollar signs can be recognized. On the one hand, this is a symbol for the social focus on money and the resulting blindness for and transfiguration of the things that give happiness in life. On the other hand, it also addresses her own lack of opportunities, which would result from absolute destitution or blindness. In her hands she holds a bouquet of daffodils. These cut flowers stand symbolically for the narcissist who frequently appears today, but who could never have fallen in love with his mirror image without her eyesight. The artist ponders: “The eyes hurt, a glimmer of hope remains. Why does it hit her? How long will the artist be among those who see? What can an artist do without her eyesight? And then she sees blind sighted people and hopes for insight for humanity”. | Source:
