At the entrance door of the gallery there was a traffic light (on loan from the traffic department) and in the gallery space there was a 4 x 11 meter zebra crossing made of water crystals for the white stripes and oil and water for the black stripes. This was the first sculpture to ever be put in a canal in The Haag
Mirrors and Labyrinth
The exhibition’s concept is inspired by black and white mosaic floor and wall decorations in geometric and labyrinth patterns from the antique period. My investigation began with the mosaics from the hospital at Villa Hadrian. Reminiscent of op art, I found these mosaics could be a starting point for an investigation using materials other than tesserea, and exploring newer materials and techniques. I have been working with water pressure cutting, laser cutting and silkscreen. I have been using and mixing mirror, plexiglass, plastics and a newer mirror technology that is use mainly for lighting
Looking Glass 1996
Oslo Tourist center, now the Nobel peace center.
Letters cut out in mirror spelling the word looking glass, the old English word for mirror. They letters were also cut out in mirror image. The letters were mounted on a piece of glass that was 3500mm x 2200mm. Each letter had it’s mirror image mounted on the opposite side of the glass, so it could be read from both sides. 500 mm by ca. 300 mm.
