notes on objects
Notes on Objects is a group exhibition featuring the work of Teresa Braula Reis, Braco Dimitrijevic, Harm van den Dorpel, Marte Eknæs, and Carlos Noronha Feio, as well as a new site-specific work by Anton Ginzburg.
The artists, whose works and references span time, geography, and media, are brought together by their overarching dedication to the expansion of the definitions of sculpture, and an embrace of text, painting, data, found objects, and materials both organic and inorganic, in a questioning of sculpture's physical and structural limitations, toward an exploration of its experiential possibilities. Decades on from Robert Morris’ 1966 Notes on Sculpture, while artists have continued to affirm and reaffirm the importance of Morris’ conceptual approach to forming and making, Notes on Objects responds to this essay with a selection of artists and works that represent a progression of its ideas through a range of approaches. These artists work as pathfinders connecting times and places, and culminate in an exhibition that celebrates their post-conceptual ability to work with a more broad view of the passage of history, and create a Morris-esque ‘experienced variable.’
