The artwork was conceived in peaceful times, it divided space horizontally and provoked the audience by usurping the territory reserved for them. In the middle of an unexpected pandemic, when everything was closed down and life was frozen, the work was first installed in the Art Park Gallery in Dusseldorf.
Then the work existed by itself, occupying the entire space of the gallery void of visitors, acquiring completely different, unexpected meanings.
Currently, the work takes up the space of the VAA gallery Artifex. What meanings does the work acquire now? Probably they are different for everyone. Perhaps, they are experienced more than described in words.
