We are delighted to announce our participation in Market 2011.
At the fair we will present Gardar Eide Einarsson’s new piece Untitled (Xanax) – an appropriation from an American medical add that uses Jackson Pollock’s notorious drips to promote their antidepressant. In his art Einarsson has often cited Pollock, and with this work Einarsson creates an interesting double take on Pollock’s free and expressionist lines and drips as they are twice mechanically reproduced.
During the fair it will be possible to experience Einarsson’s diverse artistic practice as his solo exhibition Power has a Fragrance will be on display at Bonniers Konsthall. Additionally, Einarsson is participating at the group exhibition Investigations of a Dog – Works from the FACE Collections at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall.
By Olaf Breuning we will present a photographic work from Breuning’s recent exhibition Marilyns. The work takes its point of departure in Andy Warhol’s iconic portrait of the famous actress, and Breuning’s painted ladies point towards an art historical between painting and photography.
Tom Sandberg is one of Scandinavia’s most renowned classic photographers and at the fair we will show a selection of his poetic black and white photographs. Sandberg masters to capture the beauty in the mundane and ephemeral and his solo show at PS1 MoMA in 2007 beautifully summed up the seductive intensity of his work.
Throughout her career Miriam Bäckström has repeatedly worked with the schism between reality and fiction. The photograph Untitled that we will present at the fair is quite ambiguous, as it is an image of a film set that replicates an image of an estate of a deceased person originally taken by Miriam Bäckström. As such there are many layers of identification in the photo of the kitchen as the limits between what is real and what is a construction is blurred.
Finally we will present three works on paper by Mexican artist Daniel Guzman. In his drawings Guzman use a variety of sources ranging from Western pop culture to Aztec symbolism. By mapping out the images that surround him and are part of his cultural heritage, the artist draws a multi-facetted picture of his person and sheds an enlightening and critical light on his generation as a whole.
