Dear swarm-I, a room swarming of we-me-s
Dear swarm-I, a room swarming of we-me-s is an installed text piece. Large papers form a room to read. How does one read one's way through a room? How do we read a space?
Paper and documents carry different meanings in our lives, the reading activity becomes a way of tracing and connecting intentions. Large amounts of paper pass through our hands: agreements, letters, instructions, notes, books. The texts in the exhibition Dear swarm-I, a room swarming... are written by the artist and suggest various exchanges between subject and subjects and situations, following Gilbert Simondon's concept intersubjectivity.
It's about how one is created in inspiration of and in friction with others - people, phenomena and things. Paper as a material is affected by the handling, if it breaks a fold is imprinted. How the light falls over the surface tells about fibers, roughness and might also create transparency. The papers in Dear swarm-I, a room swarming... have hand-printed text and is the result of a year's ongoing printing process.
The opening at Haninge konsthall was celebrated with a new performance.
