'Hebe 1796 (Skulptur von Antonio Canova, 1757-1822) Alte Nationalgalerie Berlin'

Since 2000 Neusüss has been making photograms of sculpture in various museum collections. In this work, overlapping double exposures - both positive and negative - create multiple views of Canova's sculpture of Hebe, the Greek goddess of youth. These sculpture photograms speak of artists' enduring fascination with animate bodily forms and how they can be transformed into idealised inanimate imaginings.
