The Packhaus Portraits
Zum einjährigen Geburtstag von DAS PACKHAUS, entstand in Kooperation mit Marija Jociuté eine Fotoreihe, um Einblicke in die Arbeitsplätze der Kreativen im Haus zu geben.
„You are walking in Vienna’s 3rd district, reaching Marxergasse and you see an office building that stands out from old, renovated beauty around it. It stands here still, in its moss green colour, and you wonder if it’s alive. Yes, it’s breathing. In the 1970's, this building was designed as a usual office space for workers. Today, after years of stillness, it wakes up for different people and their work. Same rooms are still here and schemes repeat themselves floor to floor, yet their insides loses their uniformity.
You feel like stranger here, entering intimate spaces of work, which sometimes feels more like home, yet you are kindly welcomed by the people working here and now you can have a glance into their working day. For a few moments you can quietly observe them doing things they care about, or listen to a story about a project they are engaged in, about a colleague who is not here at the moment, or even help to fix a bicycle chain. Walking from one space to another, you can sense, every room has a different temper. The monotony of the ordinary office is replaced by spaces which are tuned to their temporary occupiers.
The work goes on, and you need to go now, but stop for a coffee in the ground floor before you leave, maybe you meet a familiar face.“
