Subject of Art 2012
Materials: Yellow pencils
Size: 17,5 × 17,5 × 17,5 cm

The objects relate to Dahlgren’s persistent themes and show how our everyday life can be viewed as an on-going exhibition of geometric and abstract patterns. Ordinary pencils arranged in small squares display a variation of a topographical theme. The title: “Subject of Art” is in itself almost a manifest of Jacob Dahlgren’s thoughts about art and the ideas of authenticity. The cheap, ordinary pencils become refined as material and artefacts.
