the steel frame is composed of easy to assemble modular elements due to its bolt-less design that allows maximum flexibility. visualized as a house-shaped typology, photographs of the azerbaijan pavilion from the EXPO 2015 are displayed within. the wings created by the steel structure encourages exploration and ways to interact with the space.

the black jute cloth wraps the installation – delineating five distinct exhibition areas with ten photographs distributed among these intimate spaces. as well as acting as a support for the exhibition of images, the fabric produces a checquered pattern, which consists of a modular grid of 1 square-meter spaces.
