Maria Mantling contains the piture-conception of the stage design for Maria XXX from Heike Hennig & CO, developed in collaboration with architects Noriko und Felix Minkus. A detail out of Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini´s “Ecstasy of St. Theresa” provides its basis, whose adaptation plays with the media strategy for hiding faces or people´s private parts in public representations and with the possible interpretation of the sculpture itself – between sensual and spiritual pleasure.
