Liftings - Februar 2003

Ingvild Klundby
Stallarbejder, Hasle Gård på Nesodden

-Jeg har til nå løftet ca 90 personer. Alle som lar seg løfte får et diplom. Som regel blir det fotografert. Jeg kan ikke løfte noen som veier over 97 kilo.

LIFTINGS
Januar 2000

PROJECT EMERGED FROM:
The basic need to feel like a resource in society
-as a woman
-as an artist
-as a privileged, forever young individual in the post modern information age

COMBINED WITH:
The personal pleasure of literally lifting people and for them to say: Wow, you are so strong!
Also; giving the artist the opportunity for:
-meeting very different people
-tearing down social barrieres
-non sexual, physical act of closeness with strangers

ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE MAY BE LIFTED BY THE ARTIST:
International business men/women, people living in the street, hair dressers, artists, politicians, sports men/women, old people, pop stars, hippies, restaurant owners, children, pro- fessors, taxi drivers, fathers and other categories of all races and sexual preferences.

IN VARIOUS SETTINGS:
-private homes
-embassies
-bars
-banks
-streets
-offices
-parking lots
-e.t.c.

DOCUMENTATION:
-snapshots
-photo

for as long as my body can do it

DISCLAIMER:
I don't lift people who don't want to be lifted or people I don't want to lift, for whatever reason.
