The research-based installation brings together dozens of photographs, drawings, and video stills, each of which focuses on how we move through, sit, stand, lounge and behave in public spaces, and how we relate to other people and objects.
About the total project:
‘Local Library Window: Contemporary Art About Everyone for Everyone’ is a project in which an exterior window of a library in a remote residential area was used as an exhibition space. Five summer seasons, from 2013 to 2017, took place at this site, where, besides this library at Maurice Thorez Prospect, 32, no cultural establishments exist nearby. This curatorial intervention aimed to move contemporary art practices beyond the usual museum-gallery system toward a wider audience and to examine the different manifestations of everyday life in a place of its most apparent concentration.
