It's All a Façade (Alles Fassade)

It’s All a Façade (Alles Fassade), exterior of an art gallery building, temporary halt to renovation work (installation: Galerie Mezzanin, Vienna, 2005, part of a 3-part performance/installation)

Marlene Haring exhibited three pieces in the exhibition. The first, on the exterior façade of the gallery, was entitled It's All a Façade. In fact, Haring’s only intervention on the façade was to stop temporarily the work of the builders renovating it. Towards the end of the show, the half-done façade will be completed by the workers and made into a normal Vienna exterior.
