Melissa presents Ananas/ "Color sharks" The Wand /Berlin Moabit /2013 > > >

The billboard is facing a prison. I tried to open up this framed place in a kind of decollage. Plywood pieces are overlapping the aluminium frame slightly in some parts, the choice of colours relates to the strong orange outer wall of the house to which the billboard is fixed, and to the yellow facade of the adjoining building. I wanted to enlarge simple gestures, that could be seen from a distance, even from the windows of the prison. I developed the work in studio and on site.
On a special event of "Color Sharks" curated by Melissa Steckbauer, I invited dancer Vivien Roos to dance in dialogue with this billboard painting, Japanese Onigiri rolls were served on the street.
