Artist's description:

some years later I was asked to exhibit some of my paintings at the Biennale Florence. I brought the artworks personally, because I was interested in the process of creating such a big event. This was in the year 2003, so the first year where I got my dog. I had to take it to Fortezza da Basso, because I couldn´t leave it alone. In the bustle of construction work, no one noticed the dog. We had an apartment in the Via de Fiume where I was explicitly told not to let the dog alone in the apartment, not even for a short moment. So I spent quite some time in the apartment painting the first layer of many paintings. One of them was a side glance at the Fortezza da Basso. Masses of people went to the opening event and looked at thousands of paintings. I couldn´t hear any of the speeches because I was standing at the back. (Oil on wood, It was end of November and for my feeling quite warm. From my window I could see over the rooftops of the city where the pigeons left some clear tracks. When I leaned out of the window I could see into the atrium of the hotel, where huge trash bags were lying around.
