Echo Through the Present
Galleri Mors Mössa, 1/6-28/7, 2005 123456789101112131415161718192021
On Thursday 2/6 a second small cut-out self-portrait was added to the first. This new portrait was also based on my appearance that day (just like the previous one). I had brought along some of my plants from home, and these were placed on the floor of the outer gallery space, joining the plant from the day before. A large roll of paper was brought to the gallery. The painting of the apartment building in Johanneberg was hung on the wall, and the roll of paper placed underneath it on the floor. I painted a copy of the image on the painting (the building and the figure) with coffee on the paper. Underneath this I then started drawing a sprawl of figures, buildings and whatever else appeared in a kind of spontaneous improvisatory free flow. Next to the roll of paper were photographs of the apartment building taken the previous fall. On the carpet by the table were three empty frames and two drawings. One drawing depicted the interior of an apartment, the other a windowsill with several potted plants on it. On the wall next to the doorway between the gallery spaces was another, framed, drawing of a keyharp, a guitar and an amplifier, a cardigan embroidered with flower patterns, a building, some figures, the logos of the bands The Pixies and Black Flag, and a portrait of free-jazz saxophonist Albert Ayler.
