Gewicht des Sehens


2011, mirror-glass, scaffolding elements, wood, black matt-finished paint

4,5 x 18 x 17 m

Städtische Galerie Nordhorn


The exhibition pavillion designed by the Irish artist Stephen Craig is set inside an old factory building. The floor of the pavillion is being covered entirely with mirror glass and a black, spray-painted scaffolding is installed on top of the fragile surface. The inside of the modernistic building is reflected on the floor. On the structure, visitiors can observe the space from an elevated position. 
The weight of the construction and each movement of the visitor, cause an ongoing destruction of the mirror surface. Scaffolding elements lie collapsed on cracked glass, others remain partly constructed.
