Working on Monument

An overall concept environment which deals with the content of work, society and individualism, sustainability and environment. The show consists of found objects embedded in concrete, bitumen and steel. It also includes flags from Shanghai construction sites and one enormous, pink block of concrete. Another component of the exhibition - and special part of the concept - is the actual location as well: a constantly changing, vivid indoor construction site. This place will be a wine bar called „Choir“ and will cooperate in the future with Gallery Eigenheim from Weimar in showing international and Chinese art at its Shanghai location. Bayer likes especially to exhibit in unusual places to extend the idea of art, to combine society and artistic activism and to develop the idea of communication for all; for example, the relationship between the worker, visitor and the artist in this recent exhibition. more at catalogues...
