The Locher grounds were about to be demolished and then redeveloped with residential properties. In the interim phase, the buildings of the former Locher construction company were used as artists' studios. It was in this context that the exhibition to which I was invited was conceived.
I moved 8 of the 10 existing façade sample panels from the outer façade to the staircase. There they were inserted into the 8 window openings, which they partially covered, so that from the outside behind the window openings the façade appeared to be closed. A continuous tensioning belt prevented the heavy, slightly inclined panels from falling down. They were all under the same tension. A cut would have caused them to fall in one single moment.
