The Host

pretending a wall, questioning the room 

Installation view, The Host (pretending a wall, questioning the room), 2017
Film still, The Host (pretending a wall, questioning the room), 2017
In Anlehnung an das Buch „Reisen im Skriptorium“ von Paul Auster werden Fragen an die Wirklichkeit gestellt, welche teilweise durch den Raum, den dort zu findenden Charakter und die BesucherInnen beantwortet werden. Wo hört Kulisse auf und wo beginnt der "wirkliche" Raum? Durch eine Sound-, Film- und Rauminstallation ist es möglich, in eine Welt einzutauchen, aus welcher nur schwer wieder herauszufinden ist, da sich alles immer und immer wieder, in Variationen wiederholt.

Is the door locked?

Did I check?


a vertical structure, often made of stone or brick, that divides or surrounds something:

The walls in this apartment are so thin you can hear just about every word the neighbours say.

The walls look a bit bare - can't we put some pictures up?

We had to climb over a ten-foot wall to get into the garden.

The Berlin Wall came down in 1989.


a space usually filled with glass in the wall of a building or in a vehicle, to allow light and air in and to allow people inside the building to see out:

Is it all right if I open/close the window?

He caught me staring out of the window.

I saw a child's face at the window.

He has some wonderful plants in the window (= on a surface at the bottom of the window).

I was admiring the cathedral's stained-glass windows.

Have you paid the window cleaner (= person whose job is to clean the outside of windows)?

window frames

a window ledge


the flat surface of a room on which you walk:

The floor was partly covered with a dirty old rug.

The bathroom floor needs cleaning.

The children sat playing on the floor.

There's barely enough floor space to fit a bed in this room.


a large, rectangular piece of furniture, often with four legs, used for sleeping on:

He lived in a room with only two chairs, a bed, and a table.

He likes to have breakfast in bed on a Saturday morning.

He didn't get out of bed till lunchtime today.

I'm exhausted - I'm going to bed (= going to get into a bed in order to sleep).

I always put the children to bed (= make certain that they get into a bed and are comfortable there ready for going to sleep) at 7.30 p.m.


a type of table that you can work at, often one with drawers:

an office/school desk

He sat at his desk writing letters.

He had a pile of papers on his desk.

The report arrived on/landed on/reached my desk (= I received it) this morning.
