Meticulously, Christoph Hänsli paints and works his way through 166 slices of a whole mortadella, and not only that, he paints each piece from the front and back. In the end, there are 332 pictures.
Approaching the essence of a sausage, the slowly changing pink constellations turn into an almost hypnotic universe of meditative mortadella mandalas.
This world of sliced sausage is accompanied by an exclusive text on Hänsli’s work by the renowned British writer John Berger.
