From Art to Life to Art
Galleri Andrehn-Schiptjenko, Art Basel 2008
Material: Foodcans and steel
Size: ? cm
From art to life to art takes the potential of phenomenological engagement with art to the next level. The contents of the cans are at first ingested and afterwards the casing is used as the primary material for these sculptural works. With reference to the legacies of various art movements, particularly post-minimalist and constructivist, these sculptures act as more than simple objects, but rather allude to notions of performance, economy and consumption.
