"zuhause bleiben"

2020

From the exhibition​​​​​​​ "UNWINNABLE"

Installation, intervention.

Seventeen plastic ballons

Variable dimensions

I reproduced the German phrase used during the Codiv-19 crisis to encourage citizens to stay at home. 

While writing the same phrase using balloons instead of official posters, I try to figure out if what was not more than a combination of words a short time ago can still be seen as such after a crisis. How fast can language actualize itself to incorporate new terminology? And how long does it takes for people to assimilate it?
