Sergej Dott

Berlin, Germany
Berlin-based Artist Sergej Alexander Dott is best known for his public interventions. In 2003 he realized his project “Himmelsblumen” at Potsdamer Platz, Berlin. Oversized roses were installed as temporary sculptures between modern architecture. The playful way of connecting the artificial nature to the open space between the buildings was first and foremost intended to catch the attention of passersby. Albeit there was certainly much more of content hidden in this work of Sergej Alexander Dott’s. The symbolic history of the rose is complex: for the Greeks the rose was a symbol of love, with the beginning of Christianity the rose became the mask of the devil, later on its essence was used to heal dejections.

Sergej Alexander Dott’s work consists of sculptures, installations, photography, and drawings. Every project Dott undertakes is seen through inventions of new forms, sometimes overlapping with older projects but often leading to completely new expressions. Neon tubes commonly used in public space for advertising combined with photography as in his work “6 Luminescent Objects” become advertisements for the artwork itself. What the artist himself describes as “Neon-Comics” are conceptual artworks with a good sense of humor.
What is of interest to the artist are temporary changes of familiar surroundings in order to invoke associations of all sorts. The unexpected is intended to train the eyes for everyday life.
