everything must shine for me
project 2013 -2015
concept by Daria Tchapanova
exhibition 02.- 12.08.2014
during the 25. UIA Congress Durban
03. – 07.08.2014
The installation was part of the project „interface“ initiated by the Durban based collective DALA – a parallel project during the 25. UIA (Union of Architecture) Congress held in Durban (SA) 2014.
The project is based on the story of a young boy, Bradlee Lovedale, who lives in a residential building „Vinay Court“ close to the Warwick Junction in Durban (SA). The installation „everything must shine for me“ reflects his desire to live a better life and was set up while he was in prison.
The work was initiated in 2013 and tells Bradlee‘s story of a diamond (a tattoo on his arm). It stands for hope in a difficult living situation. The video gives inside to the story and shows the life inside a building, a place away from public, from the pespective of the author.
