Silence, Exile, Deceit

Douglas Gordon’s Silence, Exile, Deceit is a wonderfully eerie experience that has found the perfect location in Zeche Zollverein’s Kokerei.

Entering the solid concrete building through the elevator to the top floor, visitors find themselves in the attic, with all sorts of ominous sounds coming up from below. The only way out is by descending.

Silence, Exile, Deceit

The stairway is filled with smoke, partly lit by floodlights, other parts drowned in shadow and sounds and videoloops complete the installation. The high concrete structure of the Kokerei is a wonderful decor for all of this.
