Surveilled too late

Intervention in public space and in an exhibition. 2008

 

 

I spent three months in Berlin, wandering around the city and discovering abandoned bicycles with missing (stolen) parts. I could see them as part of a common landscape that everyone ignores.

Months later, I returned to Berlin to take part in an exhibition, and I tried to find some of the bicycles I had previously photographed, or others, which I looked at as victims of a crime. I arranged "crime scene" settings with them, in different parts of the city. One of them was in front of the gallery, surveilled for 24 hours with a camera placed inside the gallery.
