GYM - DECORATION


Date: February 2009
Client: Butchers' Lab
We were asked to do a show at Butcher's Lab, a gym and gallery in Copenhagen. We decided to create the artwork during a one week on-site workshop, without having anything prepared in advance. The result was a series of quotes painted directly on the walls of the training rooms.

We wanted to create a contrast to the very serious form of exercise being practiced at Butcher's Lab, and so we decided to write some funny statements about exercise on the wall. We found a lot of quotes on the internet and chose 5 of them to paint in the different rooms of the gym. We printed out an alphabet and used the paper letters to draw outlines on the walls, and then we painted the letters black.
