#115 Chewing Gum
125x160 cm | Filler, oak frame
The work is made by pressing down the filler vertically until it reaches a depth of 6mm.
As the title indicates it is suppose to resemble chewing gums pressed down on the pavement. Among other things, the work deals with antisocial behaviour as a form of subconscious, or involuntary, but nevertheless subversive, respons to an alienated position.
Press is an array of works made by pressing down the filler with a horizontal plane, thus expanding it outwards.
Reminiscent of Richard Serra's Verb List I try to use simple and clearly defined actions to shape the filler in my works. This way there is always non-cognitive aspects of the production process.
