In Parzelle 62, the space is the narrative: shaded windows, screens of surveillance cameras, cryptic drawings on the walls as well as wildly scattered notes. All by themselves, the visitors discover an extensively devised micro-universe of the secluded owner of a small bower. His story and his dealing with conspiracy theories unfold for every visitor anew.
Multiple constructed realities develop in which everyone builds their own image of a life according to the everyday items. Slowly the guests become voyeurs, accomplices and protagonists who can continue the discourse about the hermit’s conspiracy theories online after their visit.
Since 2015, Barbara Lenartz explores the potential of narrative, immersive space installations as aesthetic spaces of insight and discovery in which tangible social realities are transformed into complex artistic experiences.
Running time: 45 min. per run.
