The exhibition is a sensory three-way, time-expanded gaze into what it takes to create and exhibition and the origin of ideas and thoughts from research/materials/body to collaboration/inspiration/dialogue to the (natural) space around us with creatures and things we don´t quite understand. Like Borromean rings, the three parts seem intertwined and cannot exist without the other.
The first part is a space of objects (Alan Watts´ “A Conversation with myself” coming out of a speaker, wood, scent, fabric, woodprint, soaked copy of Strindbergs Inferno, a photo of the Seine in Paris were Inferno was thrown into the river in frustration and later retrieved again, foil text with psychoanalytical inspirations and borromean rings).
The second part is a series of photographies representing aesthetic choices of an actress and her family, posing on the images. The actress is performing a transcription of Alan Watts´ “A Conversation with myself,” silently, while she instructs me on were and how to take the photos.
The third part is a room covered in translucent, green-ish fabric with a large wood voilére with three canary birds and Alan Watts´transcibed text printed on the glass, as a script to the birds.
