For the exhibtion the unique atmosphere of this empty hotel and found objects from the location were integrated into the recipients experience.

The location is an old hotel in the phase of reconstruction, all the inner walls are taken out leaving one big space on every floor (3 floors plus some extra-rooms are used).

An installation as seen through a hole in the floor above.

This was neither curated nor made by an artist. The bird was the only one of the birds (many birds populate this hotel-building when empty) that did not fly away when people came in. The curators saw this bird several times sitting on top of an old air-conditioner while preparing the exhibition. Just before installing the artworks the bird was found haning below that box - and the reason why it hadnt been flying away was clear.
