This video documents a wallpainting made in 4 days (a total of 37 hours) in the gallery space of ‘TEGN: Art-space’ in September 2017. The work is a collaboration with TEGN: Art-space.
When I heard that the gallery were about to move into a bigger space, I immediately contacted TEGN: Art-space to do a collaboration piece about the characteristic red and white candy-striped walls that they are known for.
I decided to follow all rules set by TEGN: Art-space, thus taking the role of a construction painter. So for the first time when doing an art piece, I chose to follow someone else’s rules instead of my own questioning the ownership of the art piece.
The rules of the stripes was set to be 8,7cm wide and the angle should be 55 degrees from the floor.
The titel of the work is derived from the basic income rate of a construction painter in 2017 in Denmark: 123 Dkr. per hour.
