Untitled, 2008
Site-specific Installation
500cmx600cmx400cm; Concrete slab walls

The temporary piece was made during a one month residency in Hoyerswerda (ep-residency), a former mining town in East Germany. Almost all of the especially for workers constructed Plattenbauten (building made from prefabricated slabs), as well as this one, were being demolished due to a drastic negative growth of the population. The concrete cut-outs are depicting the classic facade of the building. Similar to the beginning ideology of the Plattenbauten, the left-over mini-slabs could be used as building bricks, constructing small new  housing ideologies.
