  Astronaut / Cosmonaut, Berlin  
Victor Ash Astronaut / Cosmonaut
An astronaut floats on the wall of a typical Kreuzberg building in the centre of Berlin. You will see him as you walk down Mariannenstrasse or when driving on the U1 subway line from Kotbusser impressive figure, faceless and oversized, which cannot be overlooked.

There is something lonely and helpless about this Kreutzberg astronaut; attached to nothing, without purpose and without context. He looks like he is about to float off the wall and into space - the eternal unknown that humans have not yet managed to conquer after all. Weightless, here, he is more of a testament to the clumsy futility of human endeavour, than a heroic symbol of progress. He seems to be stretching his arm towards us in a kind of half-hearted gesture for help.

The astronaut is a classic mural painting although it looks like it's been made with a huge stencil, black paint running and dripping down the wall. In this way the astronaut relates to all the stencils that populate the walls of Berlin. We're reminded of the roots of the artist and the tradition that he comes from.

It is one of those images - black on white - which imprints itself on the retina so that if you pass by, walking or riding on a subway train, and you close your eyes for a moment there will still be a miniature spaceperson lingering in front of your eyes, accompanying you on your way through the city.

This is the way Ash works. His works are immediate but will stay with you for a while to make you think, to annoy you, or to make you wonder about the nature of humanity. Mostly in the street, the works of Ash are in your face and visible to everyone. In this sense his work is democratic and unavoidable.
