DER BAU

Der Bau

Installation created in collaboration with Octave Courtin | gallery Les Loges, Rennes | 2015

All that can be seen from outside is a big hole, that however, really leads nowhere, if you take a few steps you strike against natural firm rock. I can make no boast of having contrived this ruse intentionally, it is simply the remains of one of my many abortive building attempts, but finally it seemed to me advantageous to leave this one hole without filling it in.

Franz Kafka, The Burrow, 1931

外から見ると、大きな穴が口をあけている。しかし、この穴はどこにも通じていない。数歩すすんだところの大きな石でいきどまり。いかにもみごとに仕組んだようだが、自慢にはならない。さんざ失敗したあげく、この穴はのこしたほうがいいと考えたまでのこと。

フランツ・カフカ『巣穴』1931
