«5. Jours des éphémères»
Sidespecific intervention in Public Space , 7 Dogs
I placed similar to the intervention in Cérbère (France 2015) in Solothurn 7 dogs at different places in the city. They disappeared within hours after the opening of the exhibition in the same night. How – that stayed in the darkness. Either eliminated by humans or by sweepers swallowed at dawn.
The daily newspaper has been transformed and for a certain time converted in the shape of sleeping dogs in a different timeline. The lying dogs could remember us of stray dogs, but also to those who just wait for their owners.
The exhibition visitors got a map, on which the places, where they could find the dogs, were marked.
