Bar Babette is an atypical space for projects in Berlin. The building construction is from the 60s, the period of modernism in the GDR. It is built around a central wall which serves as a canvas for artists.
With Viron Vert's project the idea to pick up the optical structure of his carpets and transform it into a mural. In order to achieve this he designed a complex geometrical drawing in analogy to the patterns of the carpets which was then digitally printed on paper and hung up on the whole area of ​​the wall. Thus he created a stationary piece which reflects the architecture and the history of the space while retaining a strong creative self-sufficient pictorial element of the location.
