  • Catalogue Essay

    In response to visually absorbing Mernet Larsen's pieces, American poet, art critic and curator John Yau writes “it’s as if we have never seen anything like them before… Seeing becomes a kind of detective work, searching for clues while sorting through the visual evidence. We find ourselves on intimate terms with the familiar and even banal…The anarchy incipient in everyday life comes across as synonymous with its ordinariness…This is the undeniable power of Larsen’s work—she endows ubiquitous occurrences with an oddness that, on the surface of things, seems logical.”
