2010 – Ilya & Emilia Kabakov – The observer
“In The Observer, the two artists guide the viewer’s gaze by means of a fixed telescope, focused on the window of a lonely house in the far distance. There are people and… wait… angels, sitting around a table. The rest of us get the chance to peep in and recall that feeling we had as kids, that while we were away or not looking, our toys came to life and had all kinds of fun. “…this may well be the best thing I’ve seen, or done, in my whole life”.
<...perhapsthis is the very best thing that you have ever done or seen in your life>>.”
