Wolke 7 (Cloud 9)
Installation for the Somewhere Somehow Arts & Music-Festival at Spreestudios Berlin

An old abandoned office block is transformed into a love hotel during one weekend - 14 rooms - one of them all covered with cream-colored silk, filled with cushions, cotton balls and comfort - Wolke 7.

"Über den Wolken muss die Freiheit wohl grenzenlos sein" (english Version "Over the Mountains (litterally: Clouds) freedom's moore than a word in the wind") is a pop song from 1974 of Reinhardt May, a german schlager star. It is a musical interpretation of our longing to reach freedom and leave behind earthly sorrows and troubles.

Wolke 7 materializes this dream within a "love hotel" - a place that we "sexually liberated" can face with irony and ease.

Teamwork with Elisabeth Pichler (Scenographer) and Amrei Andrasch (Animation & Set Designer).

Material:
