Is This Working?

Installation, 2007

An installation that consists of a temporary office-like “workspace” built out of kitchen related objects, and a modular contruction made from purple wooden poles and lumps of insulation foam which are spread through the space. From the speakers you hear sporadic eruptions of low frequency rumbling. The piece is an experiment with the work process itself. I decided early on in the process that all ideas, materials and ingredients that appeared while I worked on it, went into the work. The result proposes to ask questions about the status of a work, about the distinction between the ongoing and the finished and about the artist’s resposibility for her/his work.

The piece was exhibited as a part of the Umea Art Academy MFA show at Bildmuséet in Umea.
