Surface of Memory
site-specific installation, polished stones
2013

"Surface of memory" is an object-intervention placed in front of the former tenement house for families with children i the former factory complex Spinnerei in Leipzig-Germany. The work is a metaphor of the lost life in the empty area, which makes me feel as families and playing children were living there just a few days ago. I created some sort of splash by polishing the cobble stones, which from certain point of view creates an effect of a mirror or an ice field. The reflection of the field is for a me a metaphor of a mirror, our own reflection can bridge us with the past and also with the dark history of the factory Spinnerei.
