asphalt, digital print on mesh, lightbulb, cables

Comissioned by Aabenraa Artweek 2015
Lighting: Danlamp

 

The road is like human skin, it is the point of contact, a threshold. It carrys scars and frictions. It is constantly evolving as it changes according to natural circumstances and human uses. 

The installation transforms an existing plot of land to suggest the road as a transportation vehicle and a mark on ground.

We removed a plot of grass; defined by connecting 3 existing banner poles to form a triangular area. In replacement of grass, we filled it up with asphalt and hung banners of skin and a light bulb in the middle that was illuminated by night; creating a platform that is seeming public yet private. Sitting between two roads, it also echoed nearby sails by the port, alluding to the sensation and experience of travel, but locked in location. 

Perhaps as an attestment to nature's continuation, on 6 August 2015, a heavy storm took along the skin banners. Today, what remains is the triangular plot of asphalt along Aabenraa Habour.
