“The Stephaneum in Bad Goisern looks like a staged backdrop for a doomsday film. A perfectly arranged disorder, a choreography of objects left behind, at first seemingly incoherent, but each of these objects, however small and insignificant, tells its own story. A search for traces begins, sequences of movement that began in the past, ended abruptly and were never completed, are taken up again by me. The cycle closes and the empty building, which has been reduced to a vacuum of uneventfulness and insignificance over the years, takes on a new function.”
