In collaboration with Monica Bonvicini Class at the Berlin University of the Arts
Steinmetzstraße 21, is part of a video work based on an installation made during 2020 lockdown in Berlin.
The work is named after the address where the artist was living while the pandemic CO-19 hit Berlin, and it is part of a long term project called “The drapery series”. Everything inside the apartment is completely covered by transparent plastic drapes, to embrace and reflect the world situation.
The process of wrapping the interior space of the apartment represents a mixture of absurdity, by searching tridimensional esthetic composition upon and under the plastic, and a commentary to the necessities that came out during the pandemic time such as protecting, being safe and sanitizing your surrounding.
