Live stream video walls allowed the audience to observe both galleries simultaneously. Ayala Closa was around but she decided move on towards his partner-exhibitor at Weld Gallery. People were come and going and after a while the party moved to Weld. There we first met Bogomir Doringer, a very nice laid-back guy. First of all he showed us his good mood about the good time he had in Stockholm and also the very well management from responsible Rajnai. Then Andrea Ayala Closa finally popped up. Although it was our first encounter, after a first quick chat we both realized about our many friends-colleagues in common. Atmosphere it was very relaxed and Doringer decided to do an extra tour with over his art focused in the Natascha Kampusch case. Including a replica all covered in silver by the secret cellar where she lived. Natascha escaped by her kidnapper Wolfgang Priklopil. She was held for more than eight years. She was a victim that suffered the Stockholm syndrome.
