A new project at Vienna Museumsquartier, curated by Lucas Gehrmann /
"1000 mm/ or the Bedroom Window"
Double projection, DVD, 22 min. 33 sec.
For over two years, Lena Lapschina points a Zenit photo camera with
1000-millimeter-hypertelelens from her bedroom window on the seventh
floor of Gasometer in Vienna's Simmering district at the surroundings.

allotment garden idyll, a rock concert hall and the supermarket car
park: hobos and biedermeier, punks and superstars, sprayers and
policemen, pissers and lovemakers, dog owners and postmen, gangs and
horses, exhibitionists and underdogs...

across the two screens, accompanied with acid-jazz by Nuclear Los.
Lena Lapschina lives and works as an artist in Vienna. She was born in
