This installation was commissioned specifically for and built in situ at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo as one of 3 parallel solo shows by: Nina Roos, Edvine Larssen and Jesper Just, curated by Maaretta Jaukkuri.
Mezzanine shows a large overturned stage
The stage stands broken in the space where it becomes a massive wall rising 7m in the skylit hall (overlyssalen).
Mezzanine was built from birch veneer, treated with a tainted benar oil
The curtain was made from silk-velvet, and floods across the floor like a puddle.
In this installation both stage and curtain have lost their functions. The stage is being staged itself, the curtain no longer hides nor reveals, yet both are creating new symbols and meanings within the exhibition space in their altered positions.
Mezzanine can be seen carrying fused references between the Japanese Noh theatre and western theatre traditions.
