Spain in Spain image 6 by Elin Kristine Kromann

2000. Title: Spain in Spain 9B

Along with the invitation to participate in this exhibition I received information that the gallery that had just moved to a new address with the street name Spain. There was also a map showing the whole area. Spain is a few streets in a vast and deserted, industrial-like area close to the harbour. My aim was to make an art piece that connected the whole area of Spain with the gallery space. For this exhibition I physically outlined the area with white sticky tape (appr. 2 km) and then rolled the tape together again forming a ball. I exhibited the ball with the map of the area and the associated documentation.

Shown at the gallery rum46, Århus, Denmark as part of the groupexhibition Rum46 i Spanien (Room46 in Spain).
