Bis wir am Hang verharren jetzt und lassen die Steine zu Tal
Site-specific spatial- and light installation, 2018
An announcement on a classiefied advertisments website in the fall 2016 triggered the attention of the artist collective Situation Room. Approximately 80 slabs of concrete from a former GDR mass-house were up to sale in Plauen. The culturally historic patina of the modules refers to changes in urban planning, social utopias and collective memories. Just as the material offers a retro perspective, the storage situation testifies to a certain appreciation for the material and presents oppurtionities to conceive new promises and utopias.
Situation Rooms artistic research resulted in connecting two places into an exchange. In the gallery space of Weisbachschen Haus a new spatial arrangment emerges by reproducing elements of a GDR mass-house. Further a large light installation for one day at the cuurent storage space snatches the concrete slabs out of its mediacy.
