site specific installation

nails, screws, wires, neon lights, old kitchen

The old villa in the center of Basel is currently used for exhibitions and not as a living space anymore. While most of rooms in the house are clean and white, the kitchen walls are full of holes and scratches, and its floor is dirty and stained. By dismantling the cover of the stove-pipe and the lamp, hidden parts within the room become visible.At the same time all the existing holes were filled with nails and screws. A critical element was the sound and flickering light of the neon-lamp which filled the room.
