ANGELS – What are they? Where do they come from?
Begin the search by locating the angel from the romantic fantasy film “Der Himmel über Berlin”, by Wim Wenders (1987).
What did I turn to? A bronze head from Benin – The Winged Victory of Samothrace – from the Hellenistic period, the Winged Victory Monument on top of the Victory Column in Berlin, and a drawing from Duchamp’s early animation, Rotorelief. The colour spectrum is from the Kabbalistic Tree of Life diagram set into the concentric circles from Rotorelief.
