Art Award Hansaplatz 2017

At first I collected old envelopes from people living on the Hansaplatz. Then I cut them open in order to reveal the tender colors inside. I affixed the envelopes to the fence surrounding a construction site, letting them overlap so that they would flutter in the wind. For the installation I picked the least attractive spot on the square: the public urinal that had been hidden behind wooden boards (a Dixie toilet was set up next to it).

The intention of this installation was to create a picturesque counterpoint to the site.

Materials: old envelopes, glue pads
