Tabacco Shop Mind The Gap


Tabacco Shop MIND THE GAP
collaborativ project with Sanae Arraqas

In the state of emergency, social, political and economic life is restricted to a minimum. All stores serving basic needs are open – including tobacconists. The Tobacconist MIND THE GAP uses the concept of a tobacconist’s store to reveal consumption and life in time of crisis, which will be reduced to “basic needs”. Cigarettes, raffles, signposts, postcards, stamps, newspapers and other goods are apparently considered as life-sustaining goods. Dependence on certain standards is apparently to be maintained. But where is the art to question this. Who recognizes the need for this vital “commodity” in a time of alienation? In the exhibition the cover of a tobacconist’s shop makes it possible to make visible structures that influence our everyday life and increase the distance between people. At the same time, measures of distance are followed that promote increasing alienation. Because our society is pervaded by a gap that spreads like a virus and is also carried on by the media.

MIND THE GAP refers to the announcement of the same name in public transportation to draw attention to the gap. A gap between platform and vehicle, a distance between us humans within a space, a distance between each other, a gap between us that could grow increasingly.

Mohnmanie

Mohnmanie_PicalloGil_Cueto

Mohnmanie is a collaborative project with the mexican artist Oscar Cueto that refers to an economy in which revenue has replaced ethical principles. Cueto and Picallo Gil question if following unethical procedures in order to reach that economical benefit is valid. This collaborative project does not question the nature of the poppy or the mass media, but an economic system that allows and encourages polarization, social hierarchies and unequal working conditions to keep a clear division between those who produce and consume the good and those who accumulate the profits. These thoughts are expressed through a publication (folder as pdf below), an installation, illustrations, a photographic work in public space and a participative action with poppy ice cream at NOTGALERIE Kunstraum Nord, an artist space by Reinhold Zisser.

“We are our ideas. […] Our sheer existence consists of the pictures we take of ourselves […]. The worst thing that can happen to us is that there are no ideas of us. “Writer and Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday

Although there are many contradictions in how people of a particular gender are physical, we as babies are already associated with a gender conception to conform to the norm. People who do not fit into this category often experience discrimination in everyday life as well as institutionally.
However, developing openness to gender diversity is essential to living together. The installation faded out thus shows the variety of physical gender characteristics. In addition, on a further level, the lack of external sexual characteristics in toys is discussed using the example of plush toys & co. Because geniuses are still taboo and therefore hidden from our everyday life.
