Charlotte Seidel

*1981, Hamburg, Germany, lives and works in Paris
Residency period: September until December 2012

«Charlotte Seidel creates small and discreet interventions, sometimes visible, in public and domestic spaces. Placing small plastic soldiers on the edge of a drain, hanging clothes of a ghost resident out to dry in an Italian village, embroidering the initials of strangers on hotel cushions, installing a sand dune in a abandoned apartment. Seidel adds, replaces, pushes, retreats. When she moves a few stones from the shade to the sun, she accomplishes a small and generous gesture in the way of Gina Pane» – Extract of a text of Florence Ostende.
