Stille wasser

site specific installation



The work Stille Wasser presented in the 13m3 gallery addresses the previous function of the space – bathroom and locker room of a gravel factory. In the outlets the artist created environment of still water. This reflects the previous function of the space and retrieves 'the past lives' of those who no longer work in the factory. The installation recollects the blurred, but still present and insufficiently revised communist history.
On the surface of 'still water' is, by means of a fluorescent, created an effect reminding of sea water in harbour, which has a glowing character due to present biochemicals and chemicals, so-called the effect of a special bio-luminescent form of phytoplankton.
