Ordnung muss sein
2010
video triptych
09:26, looped

The video triptych shows the artist whilst performing push-ups and in the process assembling and dissembling an AK5 automatic rifle. It also shows the artist where the camera is following the movement of traditional inspection of soldiers. In all parts, the artist wears a black suit, white shirt, a red handkerchief and a red, white and black striped tie; the assembling and dissembling of the weapon occurs with a green sack totally covering the artist's face and head. The title is taken from the signs with the decree "Ordnung muss sein", in German, which were displayed at the Swedish ranger regiment where the artist completed his military service between the years 1998-1999.
