Dingfest (Pinning Things Down)
Mirko Schallenberg’s constructions made of everyday objects could also look completely different, but only in the manner he has arranged them do they maintain their meticulously worked-out balance, like a jester walking on a tightrope stretched between two facades. Mirko Schallenberg, just like the jester, sometimes chooses his motifs and even more often the titles with a pun, but among these pictures we see essential and highly complex painting. Yet they present themselves with lightness and without grand gestures.
The depiction of nature’s arbitrariness, the fatigue of the material, and the wear and tear caused by daily use, which the artist consciously depicts down to the smallest detail, produces an illusion of nature – though the viewer does not become aware of this. (Sophie Gerlach)

You could order this eBook as an .ibook from iTunes from 2014 to 2019.
In early 2012, Apple launched a new version of the app called iBooks 2. This allows iBooks with multimedia content, e.g. B. 3D animations or photo galleries, read and obtain through the iBooks Store. With iBooks 3, the iCloud was firmly integrated into the app. Purchased books are also available directly on the bookshelf and can be updated. Up to iOS 7, iBooks was not preinstalled, but could be loaded via the App Store like third-party apps. It has been an integral part of the system since iOS 8.
This technical development speaks for itself. The compatibility of the ibooks and their application in contemporary art as well.
