For her edition for “Texte zur Kunst”, Euler has created an offset print reproducing a composition that the artist made by spraying ink onto paper. The motif arising from that process depicts facial features that have been fragmented and rearranged. Two pairs of lips instead of eyes, an ear forms the nose, an eye opens to be a mouth. Set prominently slightly below the center of the work, it peers out, revealing, through the hole where its iris should be, a section of a full-color map adhered behind it. Like several of the artist’s recent works, but especially the series “The Body of the Exhibition” (2012), Euler’s edition sets this image within slight hints of a geometric, architectural framework. The detail of the map, differing in each edition, and the latter’s airbrushed number are added by hand. Visiting a fictitious exhibition, the number in the foreground looks through the image of shifted senses and proportions onto its very own province.
