IMI MAUFE / A hut and a missing red horse box idea
This is a project about one of the many typical Norwegian wooden holiday cabin from the 1950s. This one is sadly about to fall down. The cabin recently changed hands complete with contents and a leaking roof. In the images taken by the estate agent, there was a hand-painted wooden red horse. This has since gone missing. Imi Maufe is an artist who conceptualises journeys and events - thought minimal documentation and text based works. She has a Master degree in Multi-disciplinary Printmaking from the University of the West of England and has lived in Norway since 2009. She has undertaken many residencies in unusual locations, and always sets out without knowing what is going to happen during her time.
At the Print and Packaging factory in Hangzhou Imi would like to create an installation using the already existing die cut moulds for making boxes and other packaging - these will conceptually represent the 150 items found in the cabin. A hand cut box format of the actual cabin will also be created. A ghost of the missing red horse will be cut out of one of the cut out boxes. Eventually the names of all the 150 items will be printed/drawn on the die cut-outs. These will be presented in a box, to be installed as a wall installation.
