Clear Channel is a project for the degree show Greetings from Bergen in Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2003) curated by Niklas Östholm. The materials used are commercial billboards and mirrors. (Each 310 x 210 cm.)
More and more of our public spaces are sold as space for advertisment, and the facade of Kunstnernes Hus would be attractive for this purpose. Instead of putting up actual advertisement, I set up two mirror images inserted into billboard frames. By doing this on the exterior wall of an art institution associations with minimalism are also evoked.
The title, Clear Channel, could also be associated with minimalism. In
literal sense «clear channel» means a medium of communication
which is easy to perceive and interpret; free of anything that marks,
darkens or disturbs. Clear Channel is also the brand of a major multinational
company in the out-of-home marketing industry.
