Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, 1998
In her work, Andrea Zittel reveals a social boundary. The wooden wall system located in one of the typical old-fashioned apartments in Berlin creates a gateway of sorts between the manorial residential area and the former maids chambers. The conventional architectural meaning is no longer relevant, but Andrea Zittel’s work maintains its original function from falling into oblivion and simultaneously exposes a hierarchical passage. DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE was build for the first Berlin Biennale and has since been on view in the front building of KW.
