In the outer gallery space the
Olskroken apartment painting was moved from the far corner to the dividing
wall, placed on a pedestal in front of the Kapten Krok drawing. Another
painting featuring a later incarnation of Kapten Krok (Kaptain Hook,
as he was renamed when I moved to California in 1983) was placed at an
angle below the Olskoken one. This version of the character was inspired
by Indiana Jones, the main protagonist of two very popular movies at
that time ("Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981) and "Indiana
Jones and the Temple of Doom" (1985)). The title of the painting, "Kaptain
Hook and the Lost Treasure", was also the name of a comic book I
drew in 1985, heavily inspired by the Indiana Jones movies. Around the
Kaptain Hook painting was a sprawl of cut-out drawings. The carpet was
also placed by the painting, and next to it the Lego model of the Millenium
Falcon and the Playmobile pirate ship, which seems to have crashed. Underneath
the pirate ship was the painting of the same ship. On the pedestal, at
the foot of the Olskroken apartment-building painting, there was a Lego
road-platform. On it were assorted Star Wars figures, all holding cups,
mugs, or bottles.
In the far corner of the outer space, where the amplifier and Olskroken
painting used to be, only the collage of cut-out drawings on the wall remained.
On the other wall I wrote in pencil "This is the end of this show.
If you want to find out what happens next you have to wait for the next
exciting show Exploration of Möldal coming soon."
During the whole day loud music emanated from the guitar amplifier in the
inner room. A CD-player, built in underneath the stage, was plugged into
the amplifier. The music was a circa fifteen minute long song which I recorded
at home with my guitar and using bowls and lids as percussion instruments.
Featuring a repetitive and sluggish Heavy Metal riff played very slowly
I also sang in a melancholic voice over the track, before it slowly evolved
into a more abstract and atonal impovised piece. The lyrics to the song
referenced memories from my late adolescence, living in Möldal outside
of Gothenburg and having discovered punk/indie rock.
Guests during the day were treated to a brunch of coffee and pancakes.
