Things You Know

2014
Installation and situational choreography
Various sizes and materials
Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf (DE)

This work consists of two identical groups of objects; one positioned in an exhibition room, and the other one at a construction site nearby. If the objects obstruct their work, the construction workers can freely move the objects around within a marked space that corresponds to the size of the exhibition space. Every Saturday, the position of the objects in the exhibition is adjusted to match that of the objects at the construction site. On the handout made for the exhibition there is a small map with directions to the construction site, so the audience can view the objects in both contexts.

This work was part of Rosa Sijben’s solo exhibition, also titled Things You Know, at Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf, 15/02/14–16/03/14.

Documentation of Things You Know is released as Jahresgaben at Kunstverein. Each edition consists of two photographs taken every week from the same perspective on both locations. Set 5 is still available here.
