Description: Plaster, animation, video projection and sound
Dimensions: 60cm x 40cm x 9cm

An object in an irregular semi organic shape, made out of plaster is hung on the wall. All kinds of patterns and objects are projected onto the object making it look like a character. Egill: “It’s a teenager. His parents wanted him to be an artwork, but he doesn’t want to obey. The moment nobody’s looking he stops posing like an artwork and starts doing what he wants. Nevertheless, he dreams about becoming an art piece when he grows up, as we can see in the brushes and the colour splashes appearing towards the end of the video loop”. This is a typical piece by Egill Sæbjörnsson where the artwork is personified, made into a living entity with a personality of it’s own, in contrast to being the “creation of the artist”.
