‘Works of art are strange tools. They have the potential to change perception and our everyday lives. It is exactly there that the contributions for the artistic toolbox will be effective. The special quality of the contributions is that the works are only completed through the active participation of those who receive a toolbox. They are sent via mail and documented online: www.sspatz.org.’
Excerpt of invitation card.
The Toolboxes are mobile exhibition spaces that travel internationally to people’s homes and that are exhibited at local art fairs and in gallery spaces.
Each Toolboxcomprises interactive artworks that offer a physical-spatial encounter wit art in times of lockdown, and in the context of domestic space. A manual guides through the Toolbox and proposes how to use the tools. My contribution to the Toolboxis the Piece of Sophisticated Matter (PoSM).
