Do not cross

Exhibition, Out of Graz


Kunstmagazin Hell

The "Subway-Video” created in New York in 1997 will be resampled for the exhibition in Bruck, and a more recent film of a taxi drive around the same city will also be screened.

New features are the "DO NOT CROSS” barricade tapes as used by the New York police. In the context of the city, they can be seen as an officially sanctioned restriction of urban life. Building sites fulfil the same "function”.

Both versions of restricting the individual in the public space are on show in series of photos. In addition, the façade of the gallery will be modified/obstructed for the duration of the exhibition.

Another way of interfering with urban life, in this case by means of an unusual visual perception of an inner-city building that is otherwise unchanging in appearance.

It is planned to install video surveillance of the pavement outside the gallery.
