Stockholm Supermarket Independent Art Fair
Telefonplan, Svarta Huset
20.4 – 24.4.2016.
I have been invited by Helsinki Artists’ association to perform HUMANSHREDDER in Stockholm Supermarket Independent Art Fair.
In the fair I am collecting people’s burdens as letters. I have installed my green letterbox to the wall with papers and pens for visitors to use.
In the installation is also a wooden stick found from the near-by forest to Black House in Telefonplan and a glass jar with pink goo.
The 4-day performance culminates to a burial of the burden-letter cube into the near-by forest (video).
I am building a cube of burden-letters:
- read letter soundlessly
- cut all words separately, mix them (several letters can be mixed together = desirably)
- drop goo on your palm with the stick
- take one word at a time, read it aloud, goo it in your palm and stick it to the cube
- repeat the act
- when all words have been read and good take goo with the stick and drop it all slowly on top of the cube.
