I protest [In protest]



Cotton, wood, textile paint
Each banner measures 340 x 470 cm

Installation view, Viborg Kunsthal, DK, 2015.

The three banners stood outside the entrance to Viborg Kunsthal and formed part of the exhibition Handlingens resonans [The resonance of action]. An exhibition made on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of women’s right to vote in Denmark, in which gender and political positioning are the central questions and in which action and today’s feminism are taken into account.

The installation acts as a performative gesture questioning the possible effects of public demonstrations and actions, expressing the urge to say something, to do something, without being able to give the utterance or action form.
