tribute to vacant support
Tribute to vacant support! (2007, ongoing), Bergen Kunsthall, started after an invitation to the Inbetween series curated by Morten Kvamme.
The purpose of the project is to contribute to keeping the large support on the roof of Bergen Kunsthall defiantly empty. For this purpose I refurbished and temporarily illuminated the metal stand back in 2007. Later I have returned regularly to remove rust and repaint. Through ads in the newspapers Morgenbladet and Bergens Tidende, I took on the responsibility for maintaining the support as long as it is left empty. Until late nineties the support carried a huge commercial neon logo. Now it shows its quality as open for possibilities.
The support was last painted in June 2020. This time in pink. Visit the project blog, hyllest.org (in Norwegian), for more background and images.
