Enter the red interior.  Look at the blue sky or

feel the rain from the hole in the roof.

Look at yourself in the mirror and

look out towards the green exterior.

RED INTERIOR, 300 x 300 x 300 cm, is made of a wood construction with a sawn tent or house from red nylon cloth. There is a squared hole in the roof where you can look up and see the sky. In one of the corners is a mirror 35 x 35 cm, and on the opposite wall from the entrance, are two holes to look through, in two positions: one for children and one for adults.

RED INTERIOR has been exhibited within a group exhibition, “Rajaton sininen” "Grenzenlos Blau", curator Gisela Meyer-Hahn, at Nelimarkka Museum, Alajärvi, Finland, as an out door installation in 2001 and at the Swedish Embassy in Tokyo, a solo exhibition in 2003.

A book on conceptual art and a catalogue from the exhibition in Alajärvi is published by 
Nelimarkka Museum in 2001.


RED INTERIOR, är tillverkad, sydd, av ett rött nylontyg jag ärvt. När jag var tonåring sydde jag, på lördagar, till mina föräldrars företag Klippoteket, s k kamkappor, som man hade över axlarna när man blev klippt eller färgad i håret.
RED INTERIOR är som en stor kamkappa som jag transformerat till något mer.
