In the exhibition the visitor finds a plinth with 4 telephone handsets on top. The moment the visitor picks up one of these handsets, he automatically gets connected to a random public telephone booth somewhere in the world. Maybe the public phone just rings into the space or maybe someone picks up …

The piece connects the inside of the exhibition with an unknown outside. The conversation partner in the telephone cabin becomes part of the piece and the visitor of the exhibitor finds himself in a situation where he becomes an ambassador for this piece and the exhibition.

„Inside and Outside“ enables an encounter with somebody who probably is very different from the usual art exhibition audience. Once the conversation is over all that remains is the fleeting trace of a maybe exceptional conversation in people‘s memory.
