by Dimitri de Perrot
The scenic 3D-sound installation uses high-traffic places in the public space to extract an interventionist theatricality from a deadlocked randomness of their daily rituals and processes, thus opening up a widening view of the interstices of the supposed familiar.
„One aspect of the work that was repeatedly emphasised in the reactions and, it seems, touched the visitors, was the restrained design of the work. I was concerned to show the work compositionally and in volume as part of a whole, a more complex structure. I was particularly pleased with the comments, because with this work I wanted to emphasise precisely this communal coexistence.“ (Dimitri de Perrot, Interview)
