HOP March 14th – April 4th 2015
Superobjekt gallery presents the group exhibition HOP – artworks exploring the concept of scale, curated by artists Karin Lind & Peter Holm / t e k s a s.
Painters, sculptors, architects and designers perceive the concept of scale in very different ways – be it through colour gamuts, size ratios, displacements of scale or though completely different objectives. This concept is an almost inevitable tool in the artistic practice. Scale means steps, and the common framework is movement and the act of shifting – little jumps or one huge leap. Scale represents the progression of contrasts and dynamics. It is with a starting point in this, the concept of scale, that artists Karin Lind and Peter Holm from the project space t e k s a s, have curated the exhibition HOP for Superobjekt.
The exhibition HOP presents ten Danish contemporary artists, who each individually perceive and apply the concept of scale in his or her own way. The artists are well-established names with roots in a variety fields within the Danish art scene. The concept of scale is ever-present and vividly interpreted throughout the exhibition, where the focus is on artworks in the form of objects. The individual artists interpret how these objects relate to the concept of scale, and spans from up-scaled wooden spoons to ready-mades. HOP presents a series of artworks in-between superobject and materiality, ranging from ceramics and wood, to bronze sculpture and refined paper folding technique.
HOP includes artworks by:
Nils Erik Gjerdevik
Klaus Thejll Jacobsen
The scale-exhibition HOP can be seen at Superobjekt Gallery from Saturday March 14th – April 4th 2015.
