Web Site Specific (2009)


 

Web Site Specific is about anonymity, lack of reference and the possibility to verify online information.
This model/installation was created specifically for Bunker Gallery in Nitra City in Slovakia and was accessible only as a live online video stream. Resembling one of the gallery rooms,  I created a small scale realistic model of an additional exhibition room. For the online audience, without an option to verify the real space, the new room was indistinguishable. Inside the model, at the back wall, I placed a text appropriated from Rosemarie Trockel's artwork: "Ich Habe Angst" ( "I am scared" ). Originally this sentence was set behind an altar in a church in Germany.
