Fire engulfs Rakvere's historic barrelhouse, 2018


NB! The artwork does not have fixed measurements (video)

The artist´s comment on the artwork: “A blaze engulfed Rakvere’s historic barrelhouse in October 2016 and the building was demolished shortly after the fire. I had passed it many times, admiring its architecture. Now all that remains in place of the beautiful landmark is a bleak, barren wasteland where the old house used to stand. The unique presence of the building can still be felt, hovering as a phantom in the air around the site.”
