Lovers Night, 2009

Installation

Production 56th October Salon, 2016

 

 

In my work I try to create a mental space for rediscovering a relationship between intimate and public space. Lovers Night creates a place for such intimacy. This installation consists of a nest filled and woven with willow branches, grass and aromatic plants. It is important for this place to be mysterious. The installation ‘starts’ once a motion tracker turns on a light when someone enters near it. This light emboldens the traveller to continue. When the first light is not enough to make road visible, a second one is activated. This is repeated until the traveller notices the numerous small lights that encircle the nest…   An artwork in a public space that is also intended to be a personal or intimate space demands a definition of its boundaries and rules. First we need to discuss the physical space. Intimacy can be thought of as an interpersonal connection of people in love but it also can mean feelings of closeness and openness towards another that does not necessarily include sex. It is connected with a feeling of security in a familiar setting – perhaps a shelter or hideaway – that brings comfort and refuge from the dangerous world outside. Building this nest, like a bird, was a performative act that evoked new meanings in its craftsmanship. One of its most important aspects is the collection of branches, grasses and plants from various forests and grassy fields near the installation. This also led me to realize their importance for the city. The creation of spaces that people can use both physically and mentally is my aim.
