“I travel from dawn to dusk #2”

Kunstner Eunju Kang monterte verket “I travel from dawn to dusk #2”  på baderommsvinduene i sørfløyen nå i påsken. Verket tar utgangspunkt i ornamentet som WH selv har brukt som utgangspunkt for logo, og som hun jobbet med under utstillingen “Ateliergalleri” sommeren 2018. “I travel from dawn to dusk #2” blir derfor en videreføring av verket som da ble montert i vinduene i hallen. Opplevelsen av verket som består av folie på vindu, vil være sterkest når en kan følge med på skyggespillet. Ettersom ulikt vær til ulik tid vil påvirke hvor og hvordan skyggene oppfører seg i rommet. 


Eunju forteller

The series I travel from dawn to dusk is a reaction to the architectural qualities of

Wergelandshaugen. I reinterpreted the original geometric elements in the woodwork

of the building and displayed them on the existing windows. My hand-cut ornaments

in metallic film bring attention to artefacts, conditions and moments that would

otherwise be left unnoticed.The motif on the windows casts sunlight and shadow on

the walls and floor. Time and weather reflects a change in character as the sunlight

fades in and out. The warping of the perspective on the surfaces gives the viewers

an ever shifting experience of the space over time.


I travel from dawn to dusk #1 (2018) was a temporary installation exhibited at

Wergelandshaugen in 2018. The installation took place in the central hallway of the

building, where the original ornaments in wood relief paneling function as a unique

backdrop for the work.


I travel from dawn to dusk #2 (2020) has been housed by Wergelandshaugen in one of

the renovated bathrooms. The artwork adapts to the functional need for increased privacy

in the room.
