ABOUT

 

The MOTH – Episode 1: The Stage

Installation with several rows of curtains refering to the theatre:

"Hauptvorhang" . The main curtain installed at the storefront / window of the gallery

"Spielvorhänge" - rows of curtains installed in the gallery referring to different functions of theatre curtains as for example the "Raffvorhang", "Hubvorhang" and "Wolkenvorhang" and

"Brecht - Gardine" – a trimmed curtain made of simple cotton.

All curtains were in constant flux, which changed the perspective, the stage set and the play.

 

At the end of the room was a pedestal with a plexiglas-cubus showing four QR-Codes called: QR Code – The Absence of the Body.
