filmjölk, glass, fishing line

Platform Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden.

Two pieces intervene with the existing architecture of the gallery Platform in Stockholm. First, selected window panes are modified by 'installing' filmy venetian blinds made of filmjölk, stuck in between open and closed, filtering sunlight into the space, and subtly shifting the impression of the stairwell as an empty, lost space by including traces of homeliness or previous habitation.  

Inside the gallery space a rectangle of knitted fishing line is suspended from the ceiling; the stiff stitches mimicking condensation and textured glass. Positioned like a skylight and reflecting the peeling paint of the ceiling above it.
