Community Center West 2007
The central element in the graphic gallery is a partition that has been covered with textured plaster. Its form developed out of folding the layout of the Kunsthalle Bremerhaven. In addition, an ordinary façade light fixture has been attached to the inner wall of the gallery at the same height as the head of a sculpture by Stephan Balkenhol on the outer wall. Miniature tables and chairs—part of the Kunsthalle’s furnishings—complete the ensemble. The graphic gallery with its carpeted floor is transformed into a homelike atmosphere. Even the title of the work—Community Center West—provides sufficient material for associations.
Material: textured plaster, chipboard, roof battens, 340 x 160 x 120 cm
