Four primal elements of our time
We neither need nor desire anything else
“Within my process based works every action is considered. If arranging a lunch is an artwork, eating it is performance, the stems, crusts and seeds are the ephemera and evidence that the event took place. Whether making a collage, arranging materials or collaborating with others, the immediate task and material at hand claim the most importance. Projects are initiated with different levels of authorship and function on various platforms of display.”
– Brion Nuda Rosch
Toves Galleri presents a FedEX show, a soloexhibition sent from San Fransisco in a small FedEX box, unpacked, assembled and installed to a degree that might make it hard to distinguish between (original) intentions and the final forms of presentation.
Exotically curated by Honza Hoeck.
