‘Ersatzteillager’ by Florina Leinss is an atlas of forms. The volume brings together a graphic vocabulary that is the basis and starting point for her paintings, graphics, and other works in an abstract contemplation of design and aesthetics. Leinss is inspired by the realm of mechanical spare parts and found objects taken from everyday devices and things. Liberated from their context, the strictly functional forms reveal nothing of their original purpose. Leinss further develops them from an aesthetic point of view in her work. In sixteen series, the graphics undergo an evolutionary development in shape. Each can be the successor, optimisation, or replacement of its predecessor.
