"Das Erhabene in mir grüßt das Erhabene in Dir („With regards from the exalted in me to the exalted in you“)" 1999

Frank Riepe

Text, movie, semi-transparent, 3 part, punched out writing, each 0,94 m x 0,2 m

Sticked all over several glass doors the sentence „With regards from the exalted in me to the exalted in you“, in German, the text work at the same time is a greeting phrase and a mantra. 

It reminds the viewer of a regardful and friendly behaviour to one’s counterpart. Furthermore it also reminds that besides the formal welcome, there is always a personal level.


The artwork was developed in the course of the project “Artistical Interior Design”.

16 artists redesigned the police department building in Bremen on a sustained basis.
