The staircase might have looked like this. Only the five first steps of it have remained.
1. The staircase script. (time) Act 1: The ambiguous identity of a space (the staircase) shifts to privacy (the studio) through radical physical transformation. Act 2: The public sphere (the gallery) emerges again trough subversive appropriation (the appartment being adapted and used as an exhibition space).
2. The appartment script. The former studio of the housekeeper, Brodsky' s appartment in St. Petersburg and the actual gallery-apartment converge into the ideal "One room and a half" for the contemporary urban nomad.
