SUPERFLEX is a part of Art at the Residence, NY

Ny Carlsbergfondet has made a donation of contemporary Danish art to the Residence of the Danish Consul General in New York to represent Danish culture, creativity and art, a decorative commission called "Art at the Residence". 

SUPERFLEX' It Is Not The End Of The World (2019) is a part of this commission. IT IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD is a work by SUPERFLEX that presents the familiar phrase as a LED light sign installation reminiscent of a commercial billboard. The viewer is invited to reflect upon our present role in a world of escalating climate change and an apocalyptic human future while imagining a future world of lively, diverse and perhaps even humanlike lifeforms.

GROUP SHOWS 

Jone Kvie presented at documenta fifteen

One site-specific sculpture, a large volcanic rock, borrowed from the Druseltal Quarry in the vicinity of the city, is situated in the public area in Kassel Hauptbahnhof for documenta fifteen. The rock has been transported out of its natural place and presented as a found object in its unmodified and uninterrupted state, with moss, lichen, and grass still growing on it. In this setting, geological or mythological questions of origins, and connections between human civilization and the volcanic rock are brought into play. 
In the public space, people can use the rock as a place to sit down and rest, as a meeting point, or just passing by. 
 
Another sculptural work is presented in Kasseller Architecturzentrum, as part of an exhibition by the artist group A Stick in the Forest by the Side of the Road. Made of handblown glass, steel, aluminum, and volcanic rock, the sculpture is an interpretation of a planetary Nebula based on a photograph taken by the Hubble Telescope. Made in a glass workshop in Murano in Italy, it follows a line of sculptural works based on images from telescopes made by Kvie in different materials throughout the past decade. 
Through the artist’s process of material translation, Kvie’s works gain an ambiguous presence in time and space, often evoking the unknown, hinting at what we yet do not know. Any relationship to their source material, be it the natural sciences, popular culture, or art history, remains inconclusive.

PUBLICATIONS 

Eduardo Terrazas Book Launch and Signing at Art Basel 2022

 EDUARDO TERRAZAS – COSMOS
"Cosmos" offers new approaches to the stunning artworks of Eduardo Terrazas. Four well-known authors present a multidisciplinary vision of the artist's ongoing series "Possibilities of a Structure". Which suggests at once a curiosity in the fabric of our universe and a profoundly human hope for underlying rationality behind the chaos of the world.

Thursday, June 16th 3-3.30 pm,

NILS STÆRK
Art Basel
Hall 2.1
Booth R21

Join artist Eduardo Terrazas & curator and contributor to the book Hans Ulrich Obrist at the event.

DESCRIPTION
Eduardo Terrazas has explored a lifetime’s worth of questions about the nature of the universe through the microcosm of his images. He derives his visual reflections with a basic geometric structure and a technique that is inspired by the Huichol tablas from Mexican indigenous tribes. His highly colourful and playful series "Possibilities of a Structure" – of which Cosmos is a subseries – has been an ongoing project since 1974 and comprises over 650 works until today: an artistic exploration of the boundaries of the infinite.

With contributions by Marcus Du Sautoy, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Guillermo Fadanelli, Arnauld Pierre

336 pages, 400 colour illustrations
28 × 28 cm, hardcover
