  Photographs showing parts of Å Sammle, text installation at Sandnes Kunst Museum, 2005
I was invited to participate in the Sandnes 50/50 exhibition. After receiving a list of all the works housed by the Sandnes Kunst Museum, I decided to make this installation. The title of every wrok held by the museum was produced as cut vinyl lettering, which was then stuck to the outside walls of the museum. In this way, I make visible on the outside of the museum, the works that are contained inside it. The information the viewer receives is restricted to the title given to each work by the artists. Due to the placing of the words, a kind of poetry is created from the titles and we are encouraged to think about the subject matter of historical art works.
