There you have it! My graduation exhibition
As an art-student, the seniors (3 year) are allowed to have an exhibition in the art museum in Ystad (Y-town/Y-city) and this was my corner.
It consisted of 7 paintings, four photographs, three drawings and my secret project.
The secret project was inspired from an exhibition in Sweden, Wanås (wanas) from Yoko Ono's "Wish Trees", were one were to write down a wish and attach it to a particular apple tree.
I made this "Word catcher" were you were to write down a word that was important to you on a piece of cloth and then attach it like a cocoon to the wheel. I made the spider from a larger light bulb, wire and glue.
The wheel itself is a front tire from a tractor donated from my art-teacher/mentor. The web was made with wire and more glue.
I was very happy to see that people actually wrote down words for my "Word Catcher". I thought that only my friends and family would have the guts to do so, but during the vernissage, I saw strangers write down their words. And look at it! It's full! 48 words were attached, 49 if you count my own which was for show.
It was words like cheese, names, love (about five people had written "love") and all kinds of stuff! So I am very pleased with how this turned out. Now, I just need to figure out what to do with all these wonderful and funny words. I might make a blanket of them and hang them on a wall, but I'm open for ideas
