*_____ Procep [Gap] – artist book, ed. 100, 2013

By removing the front door of an apartment I created a sensitive, vulnerable space. Private space merges with public. The opening where the door used to be becomes at the same time a zone of one and a zone of many – but also the gateway to a short-term utopia where trust overcomes fear.

The performance is based on the history of the nationalization of private property, the transformation of private into public. But the focus is not on ownership, but on the intrusion into the private, on separation or unity (depending on the perspective), where two or more families (are forced to) live in one common area.

I lived in this apartment without a door for ten days. Anyone could enter the apartment at any time, whether I was there or absent.
