Degerhamn Love-Affair

Installation in a former ship stores, Degerhamn June-October 2005

part of the project In the Middle of restored space, aprox. 70 sq m, illuminated 24 hrs a day 
10 love stories collected from people living in the area and recited by a young girls voice from a loudspeker mounted in the entrance door

A legendary ship stores runned by the same man, John-i-muren (John-in-the-wall), for almost seventy years. Now closed and empty since fiveteen years. I restored and repainted it with a red oil colour manufactured for the occasion. The pigment comes from a semi poisonous waste product from the lime works that you can find everywhere in and around the industrial community. The public had no access to the space other than visually through the windows.
