A minimalistic theatreplay - sending Piet Gitz-Johansen, a profesional actor to Seoul, producing an artpiece while acting a fictive version of a famous danish artist.
For the exhibition “A Love Story” Piet Gitz-Johansen propose the sculpture Swan. The work Swan. consist of a taxidermy swan mounted on the roof of Amado Art Space for the duration of the exhibition. The work conflates questions of life and death (The swan reentering the sky, while decomposing when exposed to wind and weather) with questions of visibility and invisibility (the work will not be visible to the public, but will be made present through its announcement and possible rumors), through a Duchampian move with opposite consequences. In the Swan. the object by entering the category “artworks” obtains decay and disappearance rather than display and preservation.
