something is here nothing is here (horror)

Annika Eriksson’s Something is here nothing is here (horror), 2015. The work is a lightbox placed in a pedestrian tunnel in the city center of Novosibirsk, Russia. The light of the sign is slowly fading in and out. The work was realised in the framework of the nomadic Site Residency (with its homebase on the island of Gotland, once the Baltic pirates's den), obviously rebelling against the anti-production character of the programme. To break the rules imposed by the curatorial is sometimes a good thing. We love the work, Annika, and bear no grudge!
