PR Info _ In 1985, Gregor Schneider began to build whole rooms inside the existing rooms of his house in Rheydt (Germany), replicating its interior spaces. Since then, Schneider remakes, transforms and relocates walls of these everyday places within the museum space, defying architectural logic and questioning the limits of space as well as the private and public tension.

By means of memory and recollections activated by the artist, these spaces twist the idea of placidity and, moving beyond the house as a space of protection and seclusion, present themselves as disquiet­ing precincts that disconcert, discomfort and suffcate.

The exhibition includes also his new piece Playground: a playing field produced for México, that will remains in the city after the show. The work proposes a non-functional area of play, which rules are unknown and where we can explore the public space and its signification.
