Patrick Fabian Panetta’s (b. 1977, lives and works in Berlin) video works at his MÉLANGE show belong to the same series but are displayed in variety of common modes of video-art-presentation: A massive flat screen in the front room, stacked Hantarex cube monitors in the back and an old-fashioned TV from a 90’s hotel room in the office area.
