Installation of the work on the roof of Saracvra Art Space,
an invitation by Paula Borghi and Thelma Vilas-Boas, Rio de Janeiro, BRA
02.06.2017 to 02.07.2018

Ask Your Neighbors points to the loss of the sense of community in big cities via a simple device: a neon sign on a floating structure. The work aspires to be perceived in two distinct ways: when seen by passers-by on the street during the day, it is apprehended as an installation object, a physical and material presence; when seen from afar, at night, through the windows of the buildings and houses in the neighborhood, it is an immaterial luminous message. The installation was supported by the Goethe-Institut Rio de Janeiro, the Gesellschaft für Internatio¬nale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), within the scope of the Jogos do Sul project.
