Åbi Berglund (SWE)
Hey, it’s Enrico Pallazzo, 8 april – 17 april 2011
The exhibition ”denne engstelige mann med et skjegg spunnet av sommerfugler” (This anxious man with a beard spun of butterflies) is a site-specific installation or a manifestation of sound and garbage. The artist is considering the fact that life itself can be reduced to a desperate act. Building one’s own coordinates is maybe the only way to establish some kind of necessity, however temporarily.
”When I entered the void, the young girl next to me asked for a small tribute. –I don´t own anything, I replied. –I can take your hat, she replied. I searched my pocket for a pen and a piece of paper I knew was in there. On a recite from a cleaning company I plotted some uneven lines, a hen. –What about this? It will do.” (Note found on a serial box, author unknown)
