Nichts geht mehr/Rien ne va plus - wood, roulette wheel, electric motor, paint, 180x55x180cm - 2006
In the sculpture of Nasan Tur the Roulette-ball is incessantly moving and clattering all the time. The decision moment doesn`t arrive. The endless spinning of the roulette wheel doesn`t allow the ball to settle down on a number-slot, the ball keeps jumping in and out of the slots. The game`s key situation, which decides about winning or loosing, euphoria and dejection, does not arrive by Nasan Tur sculpture. It annuls the climax of the game and stretches the instant of tension into an endless absurd loop.
