Who Has The Best Ladders 2

Centre for Creative Arts Mylly's 10 years jubilee exhibition,
Apaja shopping mall, Kuopio 2020

Centre for Creative Arts Mylly's 10 years jubilee exhibition 2020 was constructed in the Apaja shopping mall under the Kuopio market square. I built there my installation Who Has The Best Ladders 2, which is a continuation to the ladder artwork that I did 14 years ago on the yard of the Cselley Mühle (Mill), Austria. The themes of the then EU workshop are still timely: diversity and rivalty, multiculturalism and fanaticism. My artwork changes its look with light coming from the outside.

The ladders that I built up from waste wood I complemented with abondoned work gloves that I collected from abolished State Railways engineering works. I had a studio for a long time in the smithy building of the engineering works, the environment was rewarding and there were lots of good collaboration partners, as well as recycled goods.

In the corona-time openings on 6 June distance was kept, sap and water was drunk, fox sweeties and vegan cranberry candy were eaten. Summer was already blossoming in the vase.

I encouraged the spectators to participate in the installation by their own contributions. Commercial leaflets etc. materials were thrown in and why not.

But when the sun was dropped down and the ladders fell crisscross and askew, I decided that this was it. I gathered my work and utensils away from the space before the end of the exhibition and noted: an interesting experiment.
