Shooting Practice is a site specific installation at a lecture room. The photographs are taken
and exhibited at the exact same room. The images show the walls of the lecture room covered
with tattoos that are not painted, but rather shot into the brickwork. The beauty and ease of
the images stand in high contrast to the memories of pupils who run amok and generate, therefore,
an eerie feeling. Since the "bullet holes" are only a manipulation of the photographs, there is no
evidence of the event at the "scene of the crime"- the actual room the vistor is standing in. This
connection between time and space breaks the conventional chronological time line. The
spectator cannot be certain, whether the horrific event of the shooting has already happened
or might take place in the future.
