like funeral boats

Christoph refuses to give too many explanations on his work. It is their task to express what cannot be said. To think and explain makes therefore only limited sense in his opinion. Christoph Slu:"It is all about seeing and not thinking."
Nevertheless it is important for him that the viewer understands: these sculptures are more than boats. They are old. They tell a story about life and death.
Christoph Slu:"Once I met an elderly man in the city, connected to the arts. He saw pictures of my boats and he opened my eyes. He said: the boats remind me on the old boat models buried with the pharaohs (to go with them to the other world). And I began to understand."

And thats what they are. They are ferries to an undisclosed place of desire, they are like funeral boats.
