|Galleri Susanne Ottesen at Market Art Fair|
||Galleri Susanne Ottesen will participate in MARKET Art Fair 2011 in Stockholm showing works by Martin Erik Andersen, Morten Buch, Andreas Eriksson and Lawrence Weiner.|
You will find us at Booth 39
Martin Erik Andersen (DK) will build up an entire site specific installation, In Order to do Good (Champagne), 2010, at the gallery's booth. The installation consists of a hole range of different objects and materials such as knitting and textiles, a cavalet with a 3D print of the artist himself, a projection of an ongoing movie onto a cardboard box depicting a flow of changing sites varying from the artist's studio to more site specific scenes from Stockholm and the area around MARKET Art Fair, and finally a foam mattress creating a sort of dwelling or a seat for the onlooker. Martin Erik Andersen's installation is a micro cosmos interacting with both the room, the onlooker and the surroundings. The onlooker has to physically involve in the work and will hence obtain a glimpse into a strange universe of sound, picture, fabric and tactility.
Following up on his solo representation at MARKET last year Morten Buch (DK) will show a new painting xxxxxx. With its strange composition and elements the work is both refreshingly vivid in its expression as well as almost surrealistic undertones linger in-between the layers. The work comprises totally different painterly formalistic tactics as well as layers of content: Simple, na´ve and "stupid" forms along with more realistic painted elements and almost colour field like areas. Familiar surroundings and ordinary objects are often the subject of Morten Buch's paintings - but now not at all as familiar and ordinary as we tend to believe. They force us at one point to sense our reality in a new way - and at another point to reflect upon the whole art historical and painterly tradition.
Andreas Eriksson (SE) will show a presentation consisting of painting, photography and sculpture. The works circulate around small seemingly insignificant details or formations in nature: A hole in the ground, a group of molehills, the delicate suggestion of a window or an opening. Following up on his solo exhibition at the gallery, High, Low and in Between, October 15 - December 4, 2010, the works at MARKET range from the light, ethereal and ephemeral to the low materiality of the holes and the molehills that are actually spreading out over the floor of the booth. In this quiet, played down and poetic "installation", there are no sudden movements, rather a subtle keynote that envelops the entire production.
Lawrence Weiner (USA) - also installatory in its character the wall installation 2 BLOKS OF SALT - [IN THE MORNING MIST], 1991, investigates the correspondence between linguistic and visual structures. Throughout his production Lawrence Weiner has worked with a radical redefinition of language with conceptual and typographic works consisting often of both minimal and poetic text pasted onto the walls of the exhibition spaces or actual buildings. Lawrence Weiner uses language as a sculptural material and his text based works function exactly as sculptural or spatial installations, just like more traditional sculptural works.
