Installation view, Trøndelag Kunstnersenter


Photography 100 x 125 cm, and painted coconuts

Inspired by 19th century romantic battle paintings, a series of staged photographs showing the clash between “us and them” represented by diverse food (garlic, paprika, olives, lady-fingers, Tabasco sauce etc ).  The ingredients are arranged in battle with Norwegian paper flags to bring the topics of an assumed culture clash into a homey private sphere. The photographs are exhibited together with the floor-installation Attacking guerilla coconuts and "Femtekollonister" (fifth columnists).
