The Installation. 

"The Livingroom"

Room or two identical rooms (wall to wall, mirrored) furnished like middle-class living rooms in Nazi-Germany. 

There are different options, depending on the exhibition-space.

 

The installation is pluridimensional: smell, sound, tactile photoalbum... The artworks, fabrics, wallpapers, sculptures, videos, carpets etc. are handmade and created by the artist for this purpuse. Wallpapers, dorrs and windows are ephemeral and will be set up in situ.
