They Removed a Plank of Wood from their Pocket

Tara og Silla

Tara og Silla

The floorboards creak. They hiss, whisper and sing. The planks are laid down side by side, plank by plank. In their solo exhibition They Removed a Plank of Wood from their Pocket, Tara and Silla exhibit new work that weaves in and out of the floor. With the works they direct attention down to the floor. We get to know the floor through the movements of the Mouse, the song of the planks and the texture of the wood. Tara and Silla work by taking apart a phenomenon, breaking it up into bits and puzzling together the pieces.

In their practice and work, playfulness, communication and friendship are their guiding light in making performances, installations, and videoworks. They often work with participation and their motto is: “Playful not hostile”. This time they look down towards the floor with an installation that is an ode to the material and space that we walk on.
