OSLO / SPRING 2013
På den aktuelle hjørnetomten på Adamstuen er det opprettet en stasjon.
Stasjonsstaben vil kartlegge seksjonen, anvise ekstraherbare inntrykk og videre avvikle en presentasjon. Stasjonsagenter vil tilkalle nabolagsrepresentanter i Område 75 for å besiktige foretagendet.
Stasjonert for å undersøke et mulig avtrykksproblem i forbindelse med denne eiendommen. Ellers vil alt sammen stoppe opp og vi får hva vi kan kalle en trinnbrist.
The performance was commissioned by Tranformer
Transformer makes the use of derelict sites in Oslo for small art arenas for children in order to turn short-term negative urban processes on a big scale into a positive long term development on a small scale. The urban growth in Oslo has for many decades been governed by real-estate developers, whose final goal is seemingly little else than investment revenues. With rising prices for real estate in central Oslo, this has led to an ever more aggressive approach to development of available building sites and existing building-mass. Over the years we are seeing more and more scars in the urban fabric; derelict sites where buildings used to stand due to the rising level of conflict between developers and the public planning authorities. The consequences are obvious: the aesthetic deterioration; loss of city functions; social degeneration. The transformer project aims to reverse these negative processes by educating and raising awareness of the ongoing situations, and implement a process where some of these sites can be liberated for public use.
