Public Green

Niklas Belenius Gallery, Stockholm 2013

Public green is  a series of sculptures from 2013. The green colour is made to be at furnitures and structures in the public domain in Stockholm and is a sign of the infrastructure provided by the state. A sign of the common space we share the green colour becomes a symbol of a politics that supports the common. By moving a piece of this structure from the public space to the private space, the action mimics a direction in today’s politics that dismantles the commonly owned through privatization. In the public sphere, the bar is a protective fence but in the private space (the gallery) it becomes a governing structure, an obstacle.
