Outdoor public piece close to Gjønavatnet in Hålandsdalen, Fusa, outside Bergen. Commissioned by Visekongen av Fusa. Materials: Mirrors inserted into commercial billboards. (Each 310 x 210 cm)
Advertising mirrors doubling and framing views of the beautiful Hålandsdalen in Fusa. Like an advertisement it designates and «realizes» its point of view. The piece plays on a possible link between advertisements and romantic landscape paintings. In different ways, the Norwegian painting of the nineteenth century and today's advertising both deals with construction of identity. Both aims at shaping us by portraying themselves as reflections of our dreams.
