Tomas Skovgaard "Untitled" (2021)

about the artist

According to the American naturalist, essayist, poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau, you should walk like a camel. “Moreover, you must walk like a camel, which is said to be the only beast which ruminates when walking”, he says. In Tomas Skovgaard’s protocol ‘Untitled’ chewing gum is introduced as an oropharyngeal stimulation of a ruminative action while walking. The critical potential of chewing gum while walking is investigated in three steps.
