The Goethe Institut invited me to a ten day trip to Moldova and Ukraine as part of their program to support alternative art spaces in eastern Europe.
I was invited by the newly opened alternative art space #Adapter in Kremenchuk to stay there for three days as a mini residency and develop a video installation.
Besides doing an impromptu live visual performance at the opening night I developed a permanent installation object with practical value for the art space. Together with the help of Eugene Dmitriev, Pascha of PXM, Maxim Zveroboy, Maria Hildenbrandt, and Antony Chupin we built a furniture object resembling an "adapter" with a video screen to display a loop with the space's logo. Ideas for improvement were collected and in the future the adapter installation will host a Raspberry Pi with a custom software to display any kind of information, like the art space's upcoming program, and things like that.
