Once Upon a Time (2010)
”Once Upon a Time” is a series of generic headlines that appeared in the Danish financial paper, Børsen each day during the week preceding the Socle du Monde Biennial Exhibition at the Herning Art Museum. Every artist participating in the show was paired up with a business and asked to produce a work in collaboration.
Each “headline” or text that I wrote made narrative allusions, without conclusion, in order to highlight the surrounding landscape of articles and advertisements. A large stack of papers were delivered each day and placed in the museum. Visitors were invited to take a copy of the newspapers if they pleased.
The headlines are: Once upon a time, Nothing to write home about, To whom it may concern, Time for change, The author is dead, Here ends the illusion
