Les Schliesser (*1964, lives in Berlin) addresses in his works the spaces
'in between', the 'incomplete', the 'unoccupied' white smudges of history
and memory. His fictitious architect Mikołaj Chrupowski, born in Zamość,
makes a short guest appearance in Potsdam. In a modest apartment
in Schlosstrasse 9 he has set up a camp in the fragments of his
Museum of Ideal Invisibility which in Zamość was at home in a lean-to
wooden shack. Whilst in the apartment witnesses of his collaboration
with the protagonists of modernism are to be seen, out of one of the windows
the inside protrudes into the outside and marks the presence of the 'driven'
architect and sculptor in the baroque building.
