The Red Sea Star/ My Contribution
Leopold Kessler intervenes in public spaces with simple, direct actsthat subtly alter or repair civic property without seeking permission. This work (The Red Sea Star) infiltrates the commercial spaces of the Red Sea, location of the world's only underwater restaurant. Having learned to deep-sea dive for the project, Kessler encountered the space from without and then hijacked the reverse view.
Originally Commissioned and produced by the Sharjah Biennial.
