The way of weh (2022) is an installation consisting of seven engraved Plexiglas plates. Based on the German terms heimweh and fernweh, each plate describes a weh. A pain, a desire. Are desires always about what once was? Or about places you know or think you know? In the waiting room of pediatrician Jorn Gröbel, THE WAY OF WEH explores the dynamic between the new generations born after 2000 and the generations before. The Wehs on each panel describes a new concept that relates to a worldview that has changed dramatically in recent years due to the developments our society is now going through. We are currently living in a period of transition and it is clear that the world that the new generations will face will be fundamentally different from the one we live in today.
