Genova. 

A model of a building in the Genova street, with pictures inside the only apartment it portrays, is exhibited inside the actual apartment in the existing building . All the neighbours are invited and with this action a new dialogue is originated. This project was made in collaboration with Miguel Etchepare after years of conversations every Thursday morning. For building the model we had Edouard Blieck’s help. This took place in Santiago, Chile. July 2013.
