factory / "bitumen II" / concept, spatial graphics and installation"

monochromatic intervention [spatial graphic and installation] in a vacant industrial building.

monochromatic intervention [spatial graphic and installation] in a vacant industrial building. stripes of viscous, black bitumen-paint are shifting through four rooms, vary a theme, wondering about spatial volume, the change of spatial perception and position of the observer (explored in the room). both, bitumen and design in their cold, rough and technical appearance are a reference to the abandoned industrial area.

 

in the fourth and last room the graphic dissappears into the ground. the solidified black mass wells out of small cracks in the ground. a rectangle pool, 200 x 130cm, filled up to brim with bitumen, dominates the otherwise empty room. the graphic guides the visitor through three rooms into an "end-room" – a place of silence, the black surface the end and the same time the new beginning of something else.
