Les Brasseurs – OUTSIDE [HUNGER] – The Elevator

Is it still an elevator when the elevator doesn’t work.
It’s like a glass of water upside down.
Even though the water looks captured, you can feel it moving without seeing it.
The only thing is, you first have to turn the glass.

The elevator in the building of les Brasseurs is out of order since 31st of December 1990. It is connecting the basement with the ground floor and the first level.

For almost 30 years the only movement in the air shaft was the wind that found his way on stormy days.  From a crack in the roof through the basement.

To change the movement a fan was installed on the lowest level, that blew up air during the exhibition. Different from the wind, the other way around.
