The piece poses taxing questions of the monetary, symbolic and copyright value of the sky and offers a new valuation for the skyline above Oi! With it’s reputation as one of the top investment capitals for the property market, Hong Kong is also an emerging fine art market. Beauty will embrace the beast and ‘investments of passion’ will become the future.

    Zalog, Ljubljana, Slovenia 27. March 2013

    Anette was invited to Ljubljana to work with the artists Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska in a project organised by the architect Bostjan Bugaric. The context was Zalog a suburb of Ljubjana. As an output of our ‘Zalog conversations’ we re-enacted the ‘Stone Soup’, a work that Hristina Ivanovska has previously done in Stockholm amongst other places. The premise of this performative art intervention is a coming together of ‘foreigners’ into a community, and the participants are invited to make a soup by bringing a chosen ingredient. Once the soup is made all the participants are served the soup whose flavour depends on the gifts each person brought to the pot. This stone soup and gesture has historical roots in folk-tales as well as ‘potluck’ and gift-economies in various communities. This intervention inscribed itself as part of a bigger investigation into the area and the programme: Cultural Acupuncture Treatment For Suburb, which has as focus to improve public spaces in the suburbs in six localities around Central European capitals.

This time the context is the exhibition called Wild New Territories; a project that aims to challenge some of the widespread assumptions on the disconnect between ‘wilderness’, ‘humanity’ and ‘nature’. Here foreign investment speculate on the value of the sky above the Kings Cross area in London. This work can be described as a “peinture vivante” and includes an Urban Shepherd and the Pearly King and Princess of St. Pancras. The performances took place at Canada House and then at Camley Natural Park in Kings Cross, London.
