Counting Sheep I

Installation ,



 


 

The method of counting sheep is familiar to all of us. To some it worked only when they were kids, to others it
never and, yes, there are people who are still using this trance-like acting to fall to sleep. With putting the sheep
in the gallery-space at Caminul Artei i literally wanted to count each of them without losing the overview of the flock.
 
Counting Sheep is based on the small line between Illusion and Perception and it’s questioning.
 
The piece starts with a performance by a flock of 37 romanian sheep in the exhibition space. The attendance of
the sheep in the gallery is the base for the installation you are able to see now. I just left the sheep’s excrements
as it came out.
