SCHLAFEN GEGEN RECHTS – SOV MOT HØYRESIDEN
“Schlafen gegen rechts” – “Sleep towards the right” – is the title of Snorre Ytterstad’s exhibition as well as the main piece in the show – a fully functional slot machine produced by the artist himself. For every one kroner the visitor inserts, five kroners will be donated to the Anti Fascist Action, thus making a bet on the slot machine a political gesture, supporting this communist and anarchist movement. Two new works are also presented; “In the middle of the fucking room” consists of a one kroner placed in the middle of the (fucking) room with eight wires, and the piece “Play/Rewind” is a little (very little) LCD-monitor placed on the skirting board on the floor. Besides the incitement to incorporate a resistance to the right in your sleep, the exhibition’s title may be regarded as a means of reflection of all the three works on show at UKS.
