'May you be in the right place at the right time', is an site-spesific installation inspired by a phenomenon that took place during the 1800s and 1900s.
In the countryside of England in the 1800s, there were many white peppered moths. A black moth variant appeared once in a while because of a deviation in the gene. Due to their darker coloring in contrast to the environment, black moths often did not survive predators. This started to change in the late 1900s, as it was now the white moths that were mostly eaten, while the black moths thrived. These two color-variants of moths did nothing other than mind their own business, but their surroundings changed with the onset of industrialization, as coal was being used massively. It was a matter of life and death for the white and black moths, yet they were completely powerless in the face of a changing environment.  One may wonder whether the only thing that helps an individual moth is to be in the right place at the right time and to have the right camouflage.
The exhibition space has two rooms. Room one focus on coal as a material of exploration, while room two try to tell the story of the peppered moths.
