Second moment, 9 eyes. Observing and also demanding, these eyes come to life through Eiko Borcherding's pencil. In memory of threatened animals, this study masterfully moves between loose finger sketching-exercise and fascinatingly precise drawing with an unsettling feeling: Behind each eye seems to be a hidden story, a call, a plea - can you sense their desire? Or is it solely your attention that they are trying to catch ? … Imagine all the hidden narratives behind the eyes and those we encounter every day. Some we look into - directly, long, in love or even angry - but most of them we do not even pay attention to - It's time to look up.
