Renate Aller side walk 6’ apart in New York City

In April 2020, when New York was in lockdown and the epicentre of the pandemic, Renate Aller created the project side walk. She hosted friends and neighbors on her sidewalk or visited them in their street, her camera in self timer mode, recording these masked encoun-ters at a safe 6 feet distance. With voices muted by masks we learn to communicate with our eyes and body language, finding our bear-ings in a new emotional landscape. These side-walk visits created a deep sense of community where community had been forced apart. This project is in the spirit of Rainer Maria Rilke: »[...] that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other«. German born artist Renate Aller lives in New York and her art work is held in numerous museums.
