CALIFORINA DREAMING

2008, installation

I install a bed, a wardrobe and a book shelve with dimmed light in the shop window of the Interventionsraum. On the ceiling there is a projection of the Californian sky, my "window" into the distance longed for. I´m exhibiting my own bedroom and with it I create a quite individual space of intimacy and protection. Nevertheless, this is idyllic only at first sight, since a second look discovers the shop window behind which the scene takes place. Whoever lies on the bed and dreamily looks into the sky, is observed. Whoever passes the shop window lightheartedly stops: an irritation on both sides.
