Gazebo called Gunilla Wihlborg her installation of steel shiny closed house bodies in the art gallery. An exhibition based on a form on the border between architecture and sculpture that gave the visitor opportunities for self-reflection in the blurred surface. Who am I really, can I get in where questions the viewer was asked. In one of the three giant house bodies, a piece of skin-colored silk penetrated through an opening. Something human and soft was set against something hard and impregnable. The enigmatic in the closed. The house as an age-old psychological symbol for man and how one perceives oneself.
Two smaller houses, one of beeswax and one of black rubber rested on strong angle irons attached to the wall. In A rear room you could see four more house bodies in the same repetitive shape and size, but with varied materials such as gold leaf, stainless steel, lead and concrete. Pencil sketches mounted on sheet steel show that the artist was inspired by what appears to be an ancient Greek temple. “Temple and gazebo, two opposites of ecstasy, the spiritual and the sensual, as a common point.” quote Lars O Ericsson excerpt from DN 4 dec. 1990 also published in the art gallery’s exhibition booklet.
