Since 2004, Heike Bollig has been working on the theme of mistakes in our everyday lives as they arise in manufacturing errors, malfunctions and in our perception of mistakes. „Errors in Production“ is a collection of various small objects with individual manufacturing errors. Due to strict quality management in production and the striving for perfection and efficiency it is extraordinarily rare to find such lone objects that deviate from the canon of industrial standardisation. Each object tells a special story about its production and makes a concise record of the moment that went out of control.
Heike Bollig was born 1973 in Karlsruhe. She studied at Berufsfachschule für Holzbildhauerei und Schreinerei, Berchtesgaden, at Munich Academy of Fine Arts, and at the Center for Arts and Media ZKM Karlsruhe. She lives and works in Berlin.
