“In a video surreptitiously captured on Sæther’s computer in his Oslo studio, a team of security guards inspect a wooden crate that has been modified as a hiding place by the artist, in order to stay in the building after the evening curfew. Decorative objects and a vase were adhered to the top of the crate to certify that his camouflage would remain foolproof, seemingly to appear as if no one was hiding inside. Though his guise was eventually discovered, the behavior of hiding or withdrawing oneself into an embellished container is a crucial component of the works in the exhibition.”
