Blokkert utsikt No. 1
Temporary site-spesific installation
Plattenvereinigungs building at Tempelhofer Feld, Berlin (DE)
Vaseline on glass
Blocked view No. 1 is the first installation of the project View, and is an exploration of my own and others’ contemplation of a view and a landscape. By blurring a part of a window I explored how this changes the experience of a view when a part of it is smudged. It is an examination of manipulation of perception and conception, and what we as observers are able to see, as well as censoring, also in a political context.
This installation was conceived for a temporary building in Berlin’s park Tempelhofer Feld, built by the architect group Plattenvereinigung. The park is a former airport that is now open for the public. It gives an the opportunity to watch the horizon in an otherwise densely developed city.
The work was part of an event organised by Luftkollektivet. Luftkollektivet is a group of artist from Sweden, Norway and Germany, established in 2011. They meet for one week, to produce site-specific art, exchange ideas and experiences, and to examine what happens when artists are working with different methods, techniques, themes and expressions, meet and work intensively over a period of several days in a collective process.
