A Play for Shadows, 2014 – with Owen Griffiths

 

 

Commissioned by Pia Eikaas for a publication entitled Five Potential Plays, this collaborative work was made with Owen Griffiths, inspired by Alfred Jarry’s play ‘Ubu Roi’ (1896). Five artists were commissioned to reinterpret the idea of a play, in conversation with Eikaas, the publication accompanied Eikaas’s works at the MFA Exit exhibition from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art at Charlottenborg Kunsthal, in May 2014. Other contributors include Krystian Byskov, Margarita Del Carmen, Kasper Heselbjerg, and Anna Ørberg.

The plays were later performed by actors at the New York Bookfair at MOMA PS1 in September 2014, as part of the bookfair’s Norway focus.
