One Liner

By Maria Westerståhl

onelinerthumbThe One Liner is a single line of text applied to the interior surfaces of the mill like Ariadne’s thread through a labyrinth. The text is an amalgamated narrative of a temporary artistic community, based on a dialogue with individuals about the nature and process of their work. The piece invites the reader / visitor to follow a thread through the imagined internal consciousness of a temporary collective identity as well as the spaces it inhabits, imposing a format of unity to engage with the paradoxical dynamics of authorship, creativity and identity.


Text printed on adhesive vinyl strips cut into 5m lengths and numbered for sequential installation on clean wall / ceiling surfaces. Will propose a plan layout but this can be easily adapted on site.
