animation loop, 2007
Executed in acrylics on the walls and floor of my shower in Bergen, Norway as part of the „At Home in Europe“ project organized by ISIS (UK), RIXC (Latvia), InterSpace (Bulgaria) and BEK (Norway).
"The Shower" stems from the all so common wish to be someone else, or at least like someone else. From different hair to different tits, from a better skin colour to the right nationality, we often strive to some perceived ideal so hard, that the different, the specific gets washed away.
Funny how the word "identity" means both 'the quality that makes one different from another' and also 'close similarity'.
