Blanket holiday by Sitha Reis ©2019
Sitha Reis is interested in interactions in public space. For this purpose she invented the ceiling holiday. This holiday is not tied to a specific day or place. Only the weather had to play along. Sitha designed and sewed appropriate blankets, pennants and standards in her own colours. She sat down on these ceiling ensembles as an artist and invited to the ceiling holiday on the Mainwiesen and in the Offenbach city centre.
Her aim was to create temporary islands for random encounters between people. She has succeeded in doing this throughout, as the documentation proves. After the initial scepticism of the people passing by, the ceilings were always filled. Sitha wants to use this playful experiment to tear people out of their everyday lives and encourage them to communicate. No more and no less.
