Basement Gallery, Vienna, Austria, 2017

Site-specific intervention to the gallery space, found objects and gallery equipment.

Working with Gallery is a project whereby I examine the givens of the gallery space and its equipment. I do not bring any further works into the gallery: I create an environment assembled from the objects which are peculiarly part of it.

Wheelbarrow, trolley, couch, cardboard boxes, ladder, ventilator, hoover… these become the main actors, although hitherto they were concealed and unseen by the ordinary visitor. In my vocabulary,
however, they become “the quiet performers”, those who have already encountered art and understand it.
