Urn Ove

Petty Officers’ quarters

Minimalist object-based installation incorporating light, bricks and cement. Urn Ove explores the impost on human consciousness created by the conditions of spatial arbitration. The occupation of these quarters with impenetrable objects evokes the institutionalisation and separation of the legitimate citizen from the expendable body, which is otherwise effectively rendered invisible in the setting of new-look razor-wire imperialism.
