Technical specification: site-specific installation, 2015, glass neon, 160 x 80 x 10 cm
In the abandoned Barracks of the Anti-Riot Police Unit Kornelia placed a neon sign in the corridor. It didn’t block the way, it constituted only a minor inconvenience and decoration at the same time. To reach the other side, one had to lower their had to avoid the glowing obstacle. It was not clear whether the division of space is actually separating anything, or what is hidden on the other side. The installation emphasises the moment of making a decision and the risk related to crossing a symbolic border. Often what is unknown stimulates our curiosity, fear, imagination, and the will to change at the same time, as well as the hope that it will be different than it is wherever we are now. However, the change does not always come, and sometimes it is a change for worse. It is up to us to decide if we want to find out.
