tribute to vacant support
Tribute to vacant support! (Hyllest til tomt stativ!) (2007-) was a project for Bergen Kunsthall as a part of the In between series curated by Morten Kvamme.
I celebrated an old and weared down support on the roof of the kunsthall by removing rust, anti-rust treat, paint and illuminate it. The support used to carry a huge commercial neon sign. Now it shows its quality as open for possibilities.
Through an ad in Morgenbladet and Bergens Tidende I took on the responsibility for maintaining the stand as long as it is left empty. I have therefore regularly been back to paint and remove rust. The support was last painted in summer 2016.
