From the newspaper Three Weeks Behind the Castle Walls

"After placing a few freshly sliced pineapple slices in the exhibition space (to get rid of the smell of urine that filled the rooms from the time when they were used for patients) and meditating for six minutes, I moved my desk to the other side of the inner courtyard, so that I was facing the entrance, and then resumed my journal writing. In my mind I tried to speak to this unique space. I closed my eyes and listened to the silent decay of the centuries-old multi-storey building. Apart from the chirping of birds and the occasional sound of cars, everything was so quiet that the sounds of peeling paint were clear and precise. I imagined I was a security guard, assigned to spend three weeks here, watching over the castle in solitude and all that is slowly fading into oblivion." - Simon Chang
