Stairway

Installation of the artist Gil Marco Shani, curator Ori Dassau.
The work puts in situation a regular building entrance, reconstituted in the stairway of the museum. The visitors go down a slope until the entrance door, locked, and find themselves outside of a residential building. The light changes, as if someone was living there. It is cold outside.
All the materials are fake, photographs stickers reproducing the real materials and giving the illusion of reality. The visitors are inside the museum, but part of a scene from the daily life.
