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 floor of the pavilion designed by the Irish artist Stephen Craig is covered entirely with mirror glass.

A black, spray-painted scaffolding is installed on top of the fragile surface. The mirror reflects the inner architecture

and gives a unusual sight on to the modernistic space. Each movement of the spectators leads to

the continuous destruction of the fragile surface. A few scaffolding elements lie thrown over on the cracking glass,

other elements remain either partly constructed or partly de-constructed in the space.
