Meine Kleine Nachtmusik
Violins protrude from the walls. The bows are replaced by saws that are set in motion by electric motors. The audio track is comprised of a voice that imitates the sound of grenades falling. At the entrance of the public exhibition space (a ruined Turkish bath in Sarajevo) is a row of shoes, placed there as if taken off at the threshold of a private space.
