2007 / Video Drawing Installation
The “battle”, the competition and the determination to be “number one” is the foundation for several cultural and social activities. Casting-shows where youngsters are competing to become pop stars, hip hop style dance- and rap-battles, art-ranking and art-prizes, sport tournaments and computer-games are obvious examples. “Number One” is an attempt to depict such activities and their cultural and psychological structures, peticularily in relation to male behavioural patterns and conceptions of identity.
number one / the syntax errorLive-performance (15 min.), 2007.
I sample cultural input that have influenced the way I perceive myself and the world around me such as hip hop, philosophy, fantasy video- and role-playing-games, superhero fiction and notions of male ideals. I hereby deal with aggression, application of video game content, hip hop attitude, superhero comics, the paradoxes of sentential logic as well as intellectuality as a power- and status symbol, sexual aspects of power, the similarities between staged violence and gay subculture as well as Hulk as an emblematic picture of male identity.
