the Gepäckausgabe used to be the former luggage storage space of the trainstation Glarus, situated next to the Kunsthaus Glarus. After beeing Abandoned for some years the curators Katharina Lang and Martina Jakober invited artists, one after the other, to work and live for a week in the space and transform it by reacting on the already present traces of the past as its former storage use and on the interventions of the previous artist.
My interaction was to separate the space in squares, all with materials found in the room. the only things i brought along was buckets of silver-tape, white, black, yellow, red, and blue paint, a jigsaw and a drillingmachine. while cutting out the linoleum square on the floor I found bits of newspapers from the 1950ies which I collaged in the counter window, bits of talks from the past which still can be red from both sides. also the cut away linoleum showed a monotype print from all the feet which have walked over it in the past 65 years, rupping the dirt into the cardboard. On the hanging square in the middle of the room visitores were asked to store their travelling stories on a pies of paper, knotted to a square made of batten.

RACOON WITH THE GOLDEN EGG
digging through trash
shockolate, cacao with adrenalin
d.i.y., containering and occupation
is happiness with not needing much
is like holding the golden egg
it's like beeing a racoon sometimes
the original is situated at Grimmstrasse Halle / Germany
