Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels
February 26 — April 9, 2016
On display at the gallery was a group of framed wooden panels, recycled stage boards from the largest Slovenian theater stage, Gallus Hall, built in the 1970s and renovated in 2010. The edges from the old, discarded boards were trimmed and assembled into wall panels. The patterns on these trims date back to the 1970s when the stage was constructed and spills of black paint accidentally penetrated the cracks between stage boards.
Visitors were encouraged to participate – to play with the long, soft objects, which they could bend into desirable forms and place or pose with them in front of a green screen. Edited images of the objects were then placed in an archive.
