notes to invisibility 2019

Steel construction, textile, screen print on transparent paper, B/W prints, ceramics, audio

MNEMO – neue Narrative 2019

participatory installation
photographies, documents, B/W prints, found objects

A fluid, evergrowing archive of a village, its memories and perspectives of a collective past. During a period of 6 weeks the selection of documents can be expanded with personal material and memories of the village members, rearranged and rereaded. Through breaking a temporal chronology and rearrangements in spacial/geographic oder associa-tive parameters the direction of reading gets distracted, multiplied and subjectivized.
