things + kings

 

Travelling for 4 month in Asia, looking for pictures,

aesthetic phenomena. Where do I begin? What is it

that I am looking for? Aesthetics. Unaesthetics.

The world is full of both. Globalized aestheticization.

Plastic chairs, brooms, advertisment, colours, shapes.

It´s hard to stay focused with this much visual

information. I am trying to create something open,

experimental, constellative – looking for different

forms and their relation to each other. 

I find standardized design objects of our daily life,

 displayed in seemingly random contexts, thrown

away, forgotten, waiting to be used.

Creating new aesthetics out of unaesthetics. 

Forms communicate and create their own order, 

full of tension. Besides forms and things, I find 

representations of love for a king – both alive and dead.

What comes out in the end is a book, an unfinished

story about my seeking, my finding and about the 

decision to hide what could have been found.
