Photographic prints & postcards, 2003
42cm X 30cm (series of seven images)
This work was conceived as a public art piece for a psychiatric ward at a hospital in Uppsala, Sweden. It investigates the remoteness of society from the hospital as an “invisible” space concerned with the procedures of diagnosing sickness and cure.
The developed project consisted of a series of 7 photographic prints, to be installed in the waiting areas of the ward. Furthermore, the same sequence of images was to be distributed as a set of postcards throughout the city and collected by the public.
The small bottles were found in a shop selling religious requisites in Brazil. They supposedly serve as remedy for, or protection against, the emotions or sentiments described on the labels.
