(Ongoing project with Jim Brunnestom)

Taking as its starting point, The Gallery, as a space of presentation, this project experiments with levels of spatial and social intimacy in the ritual of showing/presenting work. The “gallery space” is a 20 x 20 cm area on top of a pedestal. The space of the gallery extends out on the internet where documentation from the events is available on a blog. The shows at Galleri Kolonn have a maximum number of guests at the opening - eleven people. So far, this situation has created a safe opportunity to try out and discuss ideas that may not yet be fully developed or that may seem too personal to introduce to a larger audience. For better or worse, these occasions constitute a vulnerable situation for artists and visitors alike, where it’s not possible to coolly distance one self from what is shown and talked about.
