The creative act of the destruction of those mass-produced letter trays in the series When Destruction Becomes New Form can not only be understood as an ironic response to the aestheticisation of manufactured goods – this work looks almost like a liberating jab at the epicentre of all things serial. The liberation of the object by the subversive reversal of its usefulness also brings along the visualization of an action itself: The black letter trays have been treated in different ways: folded, thrown, crushed, kicked, jumped on, hammered. The deconstruction and decontextualisation of that which conforms, salvages a productive instability so that the works of Stella Geppert usually generate a questioning of institutional space.
