The site at Brinkhalli is on an island surrounded by the frozen Baltic Sea. You could see images taken from an environmental webcam under the sea – manipulated film of jellyfish onto the front of the building and onto a toilet cistern in one of the rooms. Conceptually transforming the building into a swedish ferry liner, water taken from the port around these vessels is illuminated in one room – images of waste reflected back amongst the visitors in another space.
Each artist interpreted the theme and we worked together using a new method devised by Nevado and Carpenter in order to develop this work within a short time, and in an equal and participatory style, engaging with public spaces (for communal art actions) and organisations (to support a high quality – but completely free event). The artwork is temporary, site-specific – it cannot be owned but must be experienced! It was developed as an ongoing dialogue without advance pre-planning of the final experience.
The art and it’s cohesion is negotiated by the artists as a process through ongoing discussions with all involved.
