Object matter, Galleri Susanne Ottesen, Copenhagen, Denmark
“This exhibition presents works made between 1968 and 2014 all based on things. Some works are made of found objects or assisted readymades while other works are representing things in translation through various other media. In the first approach we are confronted with the everyday objects very literally, fx as bricks mounted on canvas, a scarf placed into concrete or a dictionary folded together and winded round with steel wire. In the second approach the thing dimension is more mediated, shoes and flower vases are fx printed using monotyping, a funnel for casting are iself cast in aluminium or objects are photographed while suspended in mid-air. Despite these differences in approach all the artist share an interest in questioning the passage through which things become art.
