What would happen if 200 arrows somehow magically hit the same bullseye? Pfeilschaften, an installation by the Polish artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski and her German counterpart, Bodo Korsig, visualises just that.
Pfeilschaften, which loosely translates to "Arrow Machinations"," is currently on display at TUFA, a gallery in the ancient German town of Trier. Smigla-Bobinski and Korsig have meticulously pieced together hundreds of tufted arrows to create the piece, which hangs in the middle of the gallery as though frozen in time. There's a dash of humour to the installation — other arrows are scattered across nearby walls, as though they missed the target. Their precise placement plays tricks on your eyes, and it's easy to imagine a fleet of very skilled invisible archers taking aim at the same target.
