My work was commissioned and created as part of the Fokus Biennale 2010, Lodz: squat or be damned, 2010: ‘Dekorative Barikaden’, in front of five different empty buildings, all of which stand on Pietrowska, Europe’s longest boulevard in Lodz.

After showing A Lighthouse for Lampedusa! in 2008/09 at Dispari&Dispari Project, Reggio Emilia and 2009 at Villa Romana, Florence, Napoli is the third stage of my Lampedusa project: to be seen at Lanificio 25 at Piazza Enrico de Nicola right in the centre of Napoli. It was great fun to set it up. Thanks to all who helped installing it. Thanks to all in Lampedusa who are trying to make this dream come true. Best wishes Thomas Kilpper
