Are you waiting in line here? Yes.

Installation of text and Audio CD's in public space, image of the CD cover, Copenhagen, 2007


Installation consist on CD including sound files that brought from the comedy duos and text. The work is produced for the Urban Pedestals exhibition. A car parking machine and pedestal were given as exhibition site that those machines resembled me double act. I placed a text on the wall behind the pedestals: "Are you waiting in line here? Yes.” which is quoted from Castello & Abbott film 1968 alongside with the free copies of audio CD's comprises of a selection of comedy duos performances.

I produce this work for a specific context that I get inspiration from "are you waiting in line here? -Yes." It is a joke that Castello is alone and Abbott asks him as if he was quing. It was obvious that the street actually has very little life and the local authorities this was a good idea to make an exhibition on the street in order to create a dynamic turn for that street. Therefore I choose the joke. In an empty street you see these lines on the wall just behind the he car parking lot next to the pedestal. As an irony to this I placed the joke as if there is a huge crowd behind the person while using he car parking machine.
