On Water


compares the occupation of Refshalevej in Copenhagen in the late spring 2008 with a very similar
art-project, ’The Harbour Laboratory’ by the art group Parfyme, taking place in the same period at
the other end of the Copenhagen harbour. The borderline of the law is used to discuss how the
seemingly similar imagery of the two events have very different consequences and thereby very
different meanings. In the performance, the aesthetics of parasitic architechture and the use of
water as the symbolic site of these events are explored in a chaotic and romantic manner.
