In an interstitial space between galleries, SIBLING has created a tribune for the printed matter. Climbing high up the lime-washed timber treads, the visitor is literally and symbolically supported by the texts. Resting on the tiers, one can stretch out and flip through a magazine, join in on a reading circle or listen to a talk. All of this activity, flanked by a mirrored wall, is reflected into infinity.
