Dictionary, 2014

An original dictionary, each page foiled with aluminum.
1100 pages.
The Epidemic of Art Gallery, Gothenburg

The artwork is a ready-made of an original dictionary, each page of which – approximately 1100 pages – I have wrapped in aluminum foil from both directions and without glue. “Why are you doing that?” someone asked, and an answer to that question is never the same. One idea was that the piece would be recognizable in the form of a book, however where the narrative isn’t visible. You can see yourself weakly reflected in the aluminum and you can see the surrounding environment vaguely outlined and dissipated. The artwork is a formation of unpacked knowledge. A latent form and page after page bearing knowledge and information.
