Back in a minute!

site specific installation, pen, paper

'Back in a minute' refers to relics of our socialist past when queuing for any kind of goods was an everyday routine. Temporary, but frequent absence of sellers, was usually announced by a hand-written message placed on windows or doors of business premises. This note was understandable to everyone.
The installation was realized in an abandoned swimming pool 'Zelená žaba' in a spa town of Trenčianske Teplice in Slovakia. Hand written notices were made by staff working in restaurants on the junctions of train routes between Bratislava and Trenčianske Teplice.
