Private and public rooms
Private and public rooms
I made the drawings when I was artist-in-residence in Helsinki, Finland. I read books and watched films. Afterwards I drew associations, memories, and pictures that had came up. Both of the photos Public rooms come from the work Twenty-one short paragraphs, a series of text-drawings and colour photos. They originates from short paragraphs from the daily paper, and deals with incidents of sexual molestation. Handlungsanweisung is my text for a permanent work for Kunsthalle Wien in Austria. It is one of one hundred signs in the project Handlungsanweisungen at Karlsplatz, the park outside the Kunsthalle.
In Pages these form a new context.
