THE ANGELS PLAY

  THE ANGELS PLAY - like islands in the dark we are floating weightless between good and evil - was an installation in Ystad City Hall Museum in 1998. The installation was based on the world of symbols from the Middle Ages. It centred around a bathroom cabinet papered on the inside with advertising pictures glorifying the violence in fashion magazines. The cabinet itself was placed in the Museum of Art in Ystad to correspond with the installation in the other museum. Photographs of the cabinet in different surroundings were placed at the bottom of lamp pedestals. The topic was the dualism between spiritual hope and the hidden violence in society. The meeting in a thin membrane of two contradictions of today. The pictures of violence as well as mirrors with written poetry were placed on the floor to be viewed from above as if they were windows to an inverted world beneath the floor.
