Aspettatori

Tim Berresheim’s work Aspettatori (2014), is a symbolic rendition of contemporary society’s current state of flux. The title, stemming from the Italian word ‘aspetta’ - ‘to wait’ - refers to the colourful figure depicted in the illustration: he is, in the words of Berresheim, a “placeholder” - an allegory for “the transit time we are all experiencing”. The theme of transit runs through the artwork down to the smallest detail: whether tracks frame the image, a cloud of fare tickets hovers next to the “waiter”, or images of signposts decorate his body: the iconography of Aspettatori points towards a state of movement.

Tim Berresheim lives and works in Aachen, Germany.
