Welcome to the jungle, 2012
kunstige grønne plantervarierende dimensioner
In the famous song Welcome to the Jungle by Guns ´n´ Roses their description of an urban environment anno 1987 goes something like this:
Welcome to the jungle we've got fun and games We got everything you want honey, we know the names We are the people that can find whatever you may need If you got the money honey we got your disease
This seems a most befitting characteristic of the art fair as a cultural phenomenon. And so my eponymous work comprises a number of artificial plants and small trees placed around the venue Fabrikken for Kunst og Design. To me this gesture is pretty much in line with the general ambition of ALT_CPH 2012 striving to have … the “fair” experiment with an activation of the material framework around the event in a way that this framework will manifest itself as one (or many) artworks.
