Exhibited at the show «Susak Expo» on Susak Island (HR)

«Remote Places #2» was an installation in public space that consisted of two parts. In the lower part («Donje Selo») of the town Susak, which lies on the island of the same name, we positioned a sculpture of a light switch. Far off, in the upper part of town («Gornje Selo») fairy lights were installed in the main alley, that went on and off every 15 minutes. They were not identifiable or marked as an artwork.
The installation flirts with the function of the island as a holiday resort and its short-term usage of tourists that need a time-off, far from everyday life.
