  • Catalogue Essay

    Like Yayoi Kusama is obliteration of polka dots, or Sandy Skoglund’s ‘swarm’ of Cheez Doodles, Studio Job’s limited edition monolithic white papier-mâché suite comprised of neo-Gothic table, chandelier, and castle-worthy floor lamp, appear to have magnetically attracted every summer insect in a wide radius. In what appears to be a typically anachronistic nod to yet another movement, Art Nouveu, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel use nature - in this case, a swarm of large insects - as decoration.
