Paper Drawings #8
Prosjektrom Normanns, Stavanger
In a wonderful spacial installation, paper sheets are rolled into tubes, fit together and transformed into a giant flower, a frozen explosion, a sprouting fountain, met by one single, red-tipped tube at the other end of the room. The shock is imminent the moment you enter the room, then you are drawn into it to just savour the beauty and amaze at the uniqueness of each tube and the beauty of the whole composition. I also cannot help focusing on the electrical socket in the center, whether intentionally a part of the installation or just an obstruction, but somehow the paper fountain seems to be sprouting out of it, or even sucking you into it. There seems to be a strange kind of gravity of not a black but a white hole, sucking new tubes into it, like that single one coming from the other end of the room.
