One Million Years - System and Symptom
Curator: Søren Grammel
Modern life happens in systems. These systems obey their own invisible logic. The exhibition One Million Years presents artists who work with systems: in cool, playful, and often so rigidly consistent ways that they put a spoke in the wheel of normal systemic thinking (e.g. Hanne Darboven, Sol LeWitt, Simon Starling). Others render invisible social systems visible. They detect situations in which the logic of a system comes to light with surprising clarity as a symptom; and we see how social identity and normal life are regulated by social systems (e.g. Henrik Olesen, Fiona Tan, Andreas Slominski). The title One Million Years alludes to a work by the artist On Kawara on display in the exhibition that engages with the system of time and history.
