Description of work included
THE ART PROJECT The 31. of October I presented by a walk and talk absurd performance the public art- project The Scene is set, (Scenen er sat). It is a temporary art project at the border of Helsingoers old town, and the harbor. It consists of four installations all together marking a red line through the city and the Culture House of Helsingoer Toldkammeret. The wish was to connect the culture house to its historical origin as a Costume chamber with ships and Oeresund and its present location as an active cultural house in the old town of Helsingoer. The red color refers to the red color on the Royal Danish Customs Chamber Signs hanging there also today. Each installation carry with it a Question; Installation part 1; WHAT IS LOVE Installation part 2; What is culture Installation part 3; What is art Installation part 4; What is life My hope was by posing the questions to beside outlining a red telling line in the public space to intrigue the visitors and pedestrians and hopefully getting them to think about the questions in relation to the art, the site they are posed, the context and their own life’s.
