Description/

“Inhales, eats, breathes, blowing out in coloured clay, out in the house of chewed symbolic smoke. Black teeth snacking sweets.”
FOS’ Black Teeth Snacking Sweets takes its inspiration from Danish painter J.F. Willumsen’s poem An Oven. The piece was first time exhibited at Den Frie Centre for Contemporary Art in the spring of 2021.

FOS has the unique ability to make the complicated understandable through his unparalleled course of design, while challenging himself, the audience and the art world. FOS’ total installations, which he refers to as ‘social design’, embrace poetry and humour while at the same time assuming a critical tone. The installations achieve maximum impact only by virtue of the audience and activities they reflect on the work.

FOS investigates how our creative forming is a symptom of an ethnically controlled social behaviour – and thereby how space defines our way of interacting. The forms and shapes of his work address both control and freedom. They are dialogues about how human identity is controlled by ethnic slang in our surroundings but they are also about “a freedom that will dissolve the strangling ropes of identity, opening up space for interpretations” as FOS argues.
