Und dreh Dich nicht um | And do not turn around, 2012

Material: wall made from gypsum boards, wood, ropes, pulleys, bulb, holder, light switch, door

A construction of ropes connects four rectangles, set into the gypsum board wall, with the door of the room. With the closing of the door the elements are pulled out of the wall. As soon as the door clicks shut, the four rectangles reach their final, horizontal position.
They now form a home decoration: a table, a bench, a shelf and a shining lamp. If a visitor opens the door, the elements fit back into the wall. The light goes off.
