Sculptural intervention in the architecture at: Luktvasslimo Farm, 2012

Intermesso is a sculptural intervention built in wood, covered with a gold coloured car lacquer.
It draws inspiration from baroque and renaissance art, providing the work with strong theatrical connotations. In the History of Art the image of light flooding in trough windows can be seen as a visualization of a higher presence. Intermesso is pulling the viewer in and out of the building with its presence in the interstice between inside and outside, appearing through a small window-like opening in the barn wall. The light is not flooding in, but shoots out towards the sky in a dramatic, yet humorous manner, breaking with the historical religious connotations. Intermesso is made as a site specific piece for the exhibition; Odor, Water, Limo at Luktvasslimo, summer 2012. The work fuses two very different realities, the extravagant continental high culture is merged with the subdued red farmhouse, common in the norwegian country side.
