OCCUPIED

intervention, 2012

 

Summer sea resorts are full of swarming vacationers greedily occupying territory in search of the best "place in the sun".
Our intervention into the public space of the beach is modeling of a pattern of behavior of occupied space.
The purpose of our intervention is to show the illegality of the marking of public space and its appropriation to the personal order.
Any attempts to claim this "public" private space causes resentment and misunderstanding.
The poetic image of the video documentation refers to the opening of the new "Americas" and the conquest of space.
