View from the installation
as seen at the exhibition "TANKEN FLYGER" at Kulturhuset, Stockholm 2002.
Our memory is not like a printed book with an unalterable text,
but rather like a flickering screen with countless images appearing and disappearing.
Not only do we register what is happening right now,
but complicated interior processes are
also milling what has happened to us earlier: adding, erasing, recreating, stocking
changing our memory and how we remember...
On the floor of the space lies a gigantic open book,
abt 1,50 x 2,50 m. sculpted in white salt.
A video projection is shown in a loop on its "pages".
Behind the book stands a pillar, showing a series of pictures
scanning of a brain (mine) where the word "memory" appears from time to time.
Coming closer, you will hear a young voice enumerating various
substance that affect our brain and our memory.
