2020 (Pandion The Grid Cabins)
"Ghost Station" and is an exact copy of the billboard at the Moritzplatz subway station. This billboard has caught my eye since I moved into the neighbourhood. To me, the subway platform resembles a museum space, and these surfaces bear a resemblance to suprematist paintings, even more so when he covers the graffiti with fresh paint, creating new surfaces of subtly different color. Through these billboards, I began to research the history of the station and others nearby. The so-called "ghost stations" were metro stations on the U8 line (which includes the Moritzplatz station) and were closed to the public use during the Cold War time. During my research, I also learned about the existence of a second station under the Moritzplatz station. This station was built for a parallel network (S-Bahn) that was never completed. It is also curious that this station has a direct exit to what is now the Prinzesinnen Garten. The work is ultimately a structure that, although it seems to hide, in fact manifests stories.
