The beautiful space ship returns

On the desert planet - outside the C74

On a beautiful spring day we sat for brunch at the gallery „Clowns und Pferde“ in Essen Frohnhausen, Germany. At some point we sighed “the beautiful space ship”; a sentence first spoken by André during the dismantling of the C74 space ship in 2014. When Bianca, the owner of the gallery, let us know that in November she would like to build another room-in-room-installation I said “the beautiful space ship returns!”. This sentence found its way into the exhibitions official title.
