Exhibition: 10th-30th May 2017
A Stop. A place, where you wait for transportation, for bus, tram or train; a well known and well defined place is connected and filled with expectation of enforced hold.
Harald Köhneke adopt the shape of a typical bus stop; by installing it inside an art place he dispossess it of its meaning. Indoors the stop in its usual scale seams to be much taller, it divides the space into two halves. In the back of the construction you find a door to enter the stop-hemisphere behind. By a closer look, the building material turns out as silver coated square timbers and transparent foil. Details that have been kept holding up the familiar impression of a stop.
Another deformed 'stop' is placed at the public space in front of the G.A.S-station. You can stand and wait in this place under a little roof.
Waiting for what?
A sign at the back of the stop shows:
This Stop is
only for to a-wait
