Out of Place


2010, exhibition at the Gallery Traversee, Munich. We still very often perceive a gallery as a white cube, even if it never is. There are always other objects in a gallery space: lamps, plugs, information leaflets etc. and we usually try to ignore them and concentrate only on the art that is exhibited there. Here, all this distractions were included in the installation that was in fact an exhibition of photographs and videos. Since the gallery was a private commercial gallery, intending to sell works to collectors, mostly private, the space was redesigned into a mock living space. The idea was to create, from the start, the sort of environment the works might eventually end up in. For this purpose Anela Djukan, an architect and the artist's mother, made a plan to rebuild the gallery spaces into an apartment and a custom made carpet with writings from an earlier video was added.
