In the beginning was the letter G, as the ancient Kabbalists say. Only this made the birth of God possible, and therefore, the creation of the universe. But what happens if the universe wants to grow bigger and bigger, enslaved quite literally by by megalomania? Will the secret be revealed today?

Christina Benz

Christina Benz (Zurich), studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College in London (Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art, First Class Honours, 2004) and gained a Master of Arts in Fine Arts at Zurich University of the Arts in 2010. Focussing on the moving image, Christina Benz’ video projects and installations have been exhibited in galleries in Zurich, London, Barcelona and Brussels.

For her project 'Shifting Sands', Christina Benz collaborates with authors and musicians, creating shortfilms that combine drawing, poetry and music and explore the interplay between these artforms. Drawing has become increasingly important in Benz' art practise. 'Lorem ipsum' is the title for a series of drawings in ink and gouache. The drawings are inspired by the aesthetics of ancient botanical illustrations.
