ETWP was exhibited
in the cellar of Trondheim's Art
At the top of the stairs
a single tv-monitor on a pillar was showing a high-pressure advertising,
seducing people to go down the stairs.
In the cellar
their were 3 video installations.
room used show-cases with toys from Anna Karin's and Line's childhood.
Two 21'' tv sets monitored Super 8 and Double 8 films from the Artists'
childhood and youth, filmed by Anna Karin's mother and Line's father.
Things were placed at a low level inviting children to have a close
Room were a theatrical scenography of a female dressing room. Two
29'' tv sets showed a performance by the Artists drinking a full
bottle of whiskey and making them-self's up talking nonsense. The
two videos were shot synchronized in a studio with the same stenography
as in the installation. The idea was to create a illusion of a makeup
mirror. The set in the videos was constant while the two women Artists
were faded in and out. The two women's toasted with each other moving
their glasses and other stuff from one tv to the other. The whole
room stank of perfume.
The Male Corridor
showed seven Men as living torsos on pillars, using seven 14'' black
tv sets. The Men were shot in front of a black background. Their
upper part of the body were naked and black cloth were masking off
the body forming it like torsos. The tv sets where placed on greek
painted pillars in front of a wall covered with black cloth, completing
the illusion of a corridor of sculptures. The Men were talking seriously
about Art, smiling or just silently contemplating their position.
