State Of Change -or - Free Meat

Sjors arrived from London and wanted a tour... as we where showing him prime real estate for the modern heroin enthusiast - on the shores of the beuticious Akerselva we came across the UKS  - Unge Kunstneres Samfund - The Young Artists Society in Norway.

very good decission on various fronts: 

Ben getting friendly sausages

1. Sjors and Ben ate free meat (an otherwise very pricy commodity in Norway) which was given to them by a nice looking bearded man with promises of bands and more meat at the nights opening ... 

... 2. art was actually interesting .... and ...

artist: Malin Lennstroem-Oertwall - the neon light tubing spelled out: "Maybe I'll never see you again" ... the glass on the Maybe tubing was smashed and splattered across the gallery floor... on the accompanying paper we where told that the pice was built in Palestine and shipped over from Palestine to Norway! 

...3... made it possible for us to take pictures of ourselves in the art while on the art while being part of the art .... very confusing ... but as far as rainy Oslo days go .... Very Very Pleased With This One. 

artist : Lina Berglund (i think)
