John Kørner // Artipelag, Sweden

28.11.2014

John Kørner is part of the curated group show HERE/NOW: A PHYSICAL ENCOUNTER IN TIME AND SPACE at Artipelag from 17 Oct 2014 - 6 Jan 2015

Barnett Newman’s expression “here and now” from his essay The Sublime is Now (1948) has been employed in a number of contexts in order to accentuate a sense of presence in the experience of art. For the exhibition at Artipelag, ten artists have been invited to create site-specific artworks in relation to the architecture of the exhibition space. It is in the spatial encounter between artwork and viewer that a dialogue arises, which Barnett Newman compared to a conversation between two persons.

Artists: Mamma Andersson, Anastasia Ax, Carolina Falkholt, Jens Fänge, Clay Ketter, John Kørner, Nina Roos, Ulrik Samuelson, Astrid Sylwan and Sophie Tottie.
