Paper Drawing # 13
Prosjektrommet / The Project Space
MAGO, Traktorstallen. Eidsvoll Verk. NO
Curator Maria Veie
“Entering the MAGO project space for the first time, I was greeted by clean, white gallery walls and industrial floors and ceilings, reflecting a time when the building served another use. A large metal beam running across the ceiling caught my attention. The beam contained small holes, and I decided there and then that this would be the starting point of my piece. A thin white line of string running through the holes, created the attachment points for the work.
In creating ‘Paper Drawing #13’, I worked a lot outdoors, spray painting my usually kept – ever so white – paper. The bold pink colour creates a strong contrast in the otherwise monochromatic space. The paper was repetitively attached to the white line of string, creating one ‘paper drawing’ after another, in layers hanging from the ceiling, for then to be dismantled. Countless attempts and experimentations lead to a solid form, almost hovering in the exhibition space. I have used my whole body, my hands and head, my rationality and irrationality. The piece is wrapped around itself – like a black hole or an endless line.”
