Instrument

2013

 

The Mill is the charismatic actor that overshadows all that plays inside. A large timber-framed warehouse, in the 1930′s it became an electric seed mill that was still operating in 2000. Its vast halls and remaining silos occasionally spill grain and rat droppings onto the floor, still shedding its former glory.

The building was a gigantic instrument, thick with dust from decades of grinding seeds, gravity-fed, its location an artery to the surrounding countryside.

35 artists created instruments that respond to this setting, whether as agency, as a dupe, as implement, as a recording, measuring or controlling device, as a music machine or even a legal tool!

Instrument is the second triennial exhibition at the Kulturmöllan in Lövestad, South Sweden.
