Plastic hardshellprotectors from various sport uniforms, sandblasted glass walls, light tubes
The work was installed in the facilities of a former Jewish steam bath in the city of Wiesbaden. The spaces (bath, massage and showercabines) have been contributed and used for artistic installation work by the Fluxus Friends Wiesbaden e. V.
The selection of protective shells were arranged and fixed on backside illuminated glass walls.
An Armory is a depot used for the storage of protective equipment and offensive weapons.
I transformed the space by the motto, “Put your gun down brother”, the ritual of laying down your protective shells and engaging naked and unprotective the unique atmosphere of the spa.
Wiesbaden is one of the foundation places of the Fluxus Movement and the nice people that run the place keep up the founding spirit and spreading the founder’s movement with lots of enthusiasm and charisma.
