This work is a sculptural remake of the monumental stage design for the play Richard the III from the Berlin Theater, 1919 by forgotten Jewish director ­Leopold Jessner (with Emil Pirchan). The stage collapses the division between architecture and design where the stage is the architecture and the architecture is the design and both suggest an allegorical setup that represents Richard the III’s desire for political power. The sculpture rescales the immersive environment of the stage to an object that invites us to reflect to the allegorical potential of representation and architecture.
