Lightening Doors

Johannes Pfeiffer
wood, paint

He artwork consists of 5 wooden doors made of very old chestnut wood obtained from old decayed houses in the Italian mountains.

I first charred the doors with fire, cleaned them by brushing and treated them with fluorescent
paint. My intention was that these lightening doors should be seen as beacons of hope. These doors, initially charred black, have undergone a transformation, and are now meant to represent
the light at the end of the tunnel. People are to identify with the belief that the problems that
affect us all will eventually be overcome. It will not be easy. The door is set at a certain height,
but it is possible if we try. The collage on the wall in Carlsbad above the Thermal Hotel is the
perfect place for this metamorphosis. The higher collage on the wall is very distinctive.There is a goal, a target to reach, a door to walk through, a situation to get through. And the "shining door" gives us hope, direction.

The artwork Lightening Doors is installed with the financial support of the Czech-German Fund for the Future.
