SpiderTag Traces Electric Geometry on the Swedish Waterfront

Posted on October 16, 2017

The Argentinian Street Artist named Spidertag has freed his work from the wall these days and prefers to trace geometry in the air.

Using a relatively new glowing fluorescent chording that emulates his previous yarn compositions Spidertag spent a week in Helsingborg, Sweden experimenting and creating one new artwork every day.

The installations on the ground, on walls, on ship docks and piers, and levitating in the air were not always simple to achieve, he tells us, and he required the help of three assistants and a car lift.

“I´m super glad of the result, the effort and the levels that I pushed myself to during this amazing week,” he says, of the multiple configurations that lit the night during Artweek, curated by Peter Erikson for Kulturhotellet. Every day at nightfall his temporary, installations suddenly lit up hidden places, many in concert with the beautiful views of Helsingborg.

The images here show the works in situ, some from multiple angles, without photo manipulation. As his electrified tags and geo-webs continue to evolve, one can imagine more complex pieces developing into the future while Spidertag tests the limits of the medium and his imagination.
