"The Art of Triumph"

Installation / Performances

The "Artch" was, of course, a paraphrase of the Europeans triumphal monuments, but a temporal one, a low budget celebration, when in times of economic recention nothing was to celebrate. It was a gigantic construction: 16 m. high x 18 m. long x 6 m. wide, and nearly 100 tons heavy, done with 24 sea-containers, with the doors facing the front, which allowed us to use each container as a small stage, which we did.

Beside the spectacle of the construction itself and the magnificent view of the "Artch", we did several performances, including multimedia shows, installations into the containers, sound collages and live concerts during the 14 days that was standing in the very heart of Stockholm: Kungsträdgorden, the most visited park in the city.

The "Artch" made a sensational impact in Stockholm's cultural life, and gave a completely new meaning to the term "street art".
