Mathias & Mathias (b. 1986/1991) have created the staged artwork “OUI” that is inspired by the tradition in Sønderjylland named tilting at the ring.
The playful artwork named “OUI” consists of an epoxy varnished, steel reinforced oak lance, a ring of painted steel and a horseshoe with the symbol of mackerels. This is how Mathias & Mathias build on the annual tilting at the ring festivals of Sønderjylland as well as Aabenraa's city weapon with the 3 mackerels. The three elements lance, ring and horseshoe make up over dimensional architectural fragments that remind us of the tilting at the ring activities.
