Shadow Aspect (June/July 2008, Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart) combined the fragmented replica of a hidden closet space, and a second-time appropriated text, which I lifted and translated from a Peter Esterhazy novel, who borrowed it from Bohumil Hrabal's short story 'Too Loud A Solitude'. Placed in a constructed environment that includes x-ray shadows of its inner structure, the fetish-like monument was stepping/falling/warping out from the walls around it, and broke into cubes, some of which doubled as armchairs. What connected the different structural elements is the text, which was imprinted or cut into every layer, like a hereditary skin condition passed on through generations. The interior, the fictional red closet is not simply the bounded territory defined by its opposition to the exterior - the exterior was actually inscribed into it.
