Location: Franz-Mehring-Platz 1 / Berlin Date: 29 July 2019 Occasion: WelcomeCamp Material / Surface:Duct Tape on 2 by 5 m windowpane Execution time: 7 hours
A day – a work of art, any time and anywhere
Is it possible to completely cover with duct tape a 2 by 5 meters wall surface within just one day? And so that a painting is created!
Our art can be created spontaneously on spots that are often unsuitable for other artists. As SELFMADECREW we have developed a motto: Wherever we are, we create art. For example on facades or walls, indoor or outdoor. We always find a way and solution to create a work of art. This time it was a windowpane that we wanted to turn into a piece of tape art.
The Motif: An outstretched hand, as a symbol of helpfulness
Every year, the WelcomeCamp connects refugees, helpers, volunteers and other actors from civil society. Due to his biography, this topic lies especially close to Ostap’s heart. Knowing that a helping hand could be worth everything to those in search of a new place to live inspired us to this motif for our tape art contribution to the event. During the show, participants of the event spontaneously helped to tape the handshake, making it a true hands-on process.
