In "Ej, pas lige på" Louise Vind Nielsen performs on an ice rink in a middle sized town of Denmark among families and children skating on the ice. Through the loudspeakers of the rink you hear a voice repeating: "Ej, pas lige på at du ikke falder. Pas på! Pas at du ikke falder. Pas på." (Oh, watch out that you don't fall. Watch out! Watch out you don't fall. Watch out.) The one side of the recording is slightly delayed in relationg to the other, so that the sentences spoken, are moving further and further apart and out of sync. This creates a sort of "dizzy" feeling, when you are moving on the ice. In her hands Vind Nielsen is holding two wooden stick which are oscillating or shivering. You only sense and hear this if you are quite close. With the sticks she fights her way over the slippery surface. Finally some people decide to help her escape this quite unstable state.
"Ej, pas lige på" was shown as a part of the project "Rumfang" by artist and curator Andreas Hald Oxenvad, in which sound and performance artists show their work on ice rinks in Oslo, Norway (Spikasuppe) and Sønderborg, Denmark. Rumfang is supported by Danish Art Council.
