Lifesaver

240 x 240 cm

A photographic representation of a lifesaver from a small fishing village in Denmark. The lifesaver is not only a practical tool - it is also a symbol of protection. In the circle, one is safe and protected from any dangers or outer impacts, but it is also a well-defined unit - a cell. Through the representation of the lifesaver only, it can be read as a hope for salvation rather than a real guarantee of being rescued.

The exhibition is part of a series of billboard exhibitions made by the artists from the Exhibition Space Sydhavn Station, in relation to the temporary visit of the well-known sculpture, Fishwife, placed outside the station during the metro construction work in the inner city of Copenhagen (DK).
