Planet Prozess

Public/Private – Signboards installation
Senatsreservenspeicher, Berlin, Germany
July 20th – August 19th 2007

Project in collaboration with Nuria Mora

About the Exhibition:

In the beginning, the city was without form and void. Then the streets became a gallery, the gaps filled up with art and life: Over 21 days we will create an exhibition about Street Art which will develop along with the city itself. Planet Prozess invites everybody to take part in this dynamic exhibition and to celebrate the finale.

About our artwork:

The project consists in place out around 50 painted signs on public places around the exhibition space. The audience is invited to take a walk, find and bring the artworks back to the gallery. With this work we are reflecting on the limit between public and private space. Each placard that came back to the gallery was signed and numbered by the artists and at the end of the show it was given back to its finder.

This practice questions ownership and authenticity and uses a kind of artistic guerrilla warfare which seeps through cracks where value and ownership crumbles in the busy and gentrified city centers around the world. It also raises questions to the significance and value of artwork depending on the context that it is presented in (gallery – virtual space – public space).

The signs were made one by one in the work and exhibition space and everyday new signs were planted in the streets around the space. The signs were manufactured everyday during the show and all the action was documented. The space faced the same artworks in two different phases: Before and after its installation in public space. This meeting will highlight the thin line between public and private and will try to indicate where is the limit that defines if an artwork is public or private. The public created the indoor exhibition; its evolution depended on the public response.

Text on the signs:

Privé Och Público

Galleri 54
Kastellgatan 7, Gothenburg, Sweden
January 12th – February 8th 2007

Per Hüttner (SE), Nuria Mora (ES) and Eltono (FR)

Privé och público (“Private and public”) by three artists from Sweden, Spain and France that all in various way work with and in the public space.

Eltono and Nuria Mora will place out 10 painted signs on public places around Galleri54 in Gothenburg. The audience is invited to take a walk, find and bring the artworks back to the gallery. With this work Eltono and Nuria are reflecting on the limit between public and private space. At the end of the show, each placard will be signed by the artists and given back to its finder.

Per Hüttner shows four new photographs he took at night in Spain in collaboration with Nuria. The pictures were taken on public places and show items that are normally found in private spaces. This genuine, but nevertheless absurd situation is stressed by the night light and the long exposure times. Hüttner also will present a sculpture that links the gallery space to the photographs.
