Bubblegum Pink, 1996

The expression Bubblegum Pink originated in the American prison system. The color was used in special cells to calm and soothe aggressive prisoners. In the installation “Bubblegum Pink” the public is confronted with three different mental climates.
“Mental Well”, a pink worn-down carpet with a circular pattern caused by pacing around it for a long time, trying to solve a difficult problem. The carpet is flanked by two fuse murals, “Short Circuit 5 and 6”.
“T-Group” is a video installation with five monitors showing several 
parrots repeating short phrases.
“Bubblegum Pink Chamber” is an enclosed cell with anti-static walls. The entrance wall is made of pink acrylic. A pink fan in the ceiling slowly moves the air.
“Bubblegum Pink” has been exhibited as a whole or in parts at Galleri Lars Bohman, Stockholm 1996, Galerie Gebauer u Thumm, Berlin 1996, Le Magasin, Grenoble 1997, h-project, Melbourne 1997.
