Exhibition concept and design for the alternative art fair AltCph. In 2018 the focus of the fair was performance art.

In close collaboration with curators Anna Weile Kjær and Esben Weile Kjær, we designed the space to mimic the quintessential art fair with a wall-to-wall carpet and a structure of temporary booths – only the walls themselves were missing, leaving just the drywall structure behind.

The exhibition was documented before and after the fact, the first set of images showing the clean structure and the props from the performances, while the second set looks like the day after a very big party.

Instead of signs or title cards a funeral-style bouquet of flowers was left at the site of each of the performances, the silk ribbon bearing the name of the artist in question.
