I, the world, things, life, 2004

Jacob Dahlgren - Farsta, Sweden


Jacob Dahlgren wears a different striped shirt everyday, and has done so for at least a decade. He has over a thousand of them. They are props in his performances and models for his paintings. His works are based on repetition and the recycling of existing aesthetic languages and ready-made objects, from coloured ribbons to yoghurt containers.

"I, the world, things, life" consists of hundreds of dartboards mounted side by side and twice as many bright red darts. Referencing Op Art, Pop Art, Action Painting, minimalism, and a myriad of other movements, the work alters over the course of the evening with accumulative participation.

Suitable for all ages
