  • Catalogue Essay

    “The artist’s objects and environments do not only draw on a repertoire of daily use; they are also produced to mimic the shiny perfection of the manufactured. He turns to industrial processes to make objects that look as if they are mass-produced, part of a continuum, from the zone of the everyday mass culture. However, their idiosyncrasies in terms of colour, size, function or location make us look again. These things or environments do not fit in. They are works of art that propose new rules of engagement not only in their internal dynamics, but also for everything and everyone in their vicinity.” (I. Blazwick, Private Matters, London, 2004)
