Exhibition by Andreas Amble

Sculpture, video and installation


A series of impossible translations, in this rich flora of materials, techniques, mediums and genres Andreas Amble investigates while building a landscape of impossibilities, home among the contradictions so evidently there in our closets surroundings, but hard to reach. This work addresses accessibility, our fragile truths and the connections and importance of the poetic and the material.

The foundation is three medial traditions where the linear or a solid structure is key will here be challenged and put up against each other. Delineated or reset, broken and rebuilt; transformative and morphing. Structures of text, video and built installation standing without stability.

The room felt funky, riddled with treats and covered in a yellow haze, that kind you cannot shake. The carpet and wall color arrangement made sense, despite the ridiculous size of that green monstrosity. Despite that it was softness, green softness.

The jagged coastline did not intervene, nor disturb more than what you would expect. 

Jagged coastlines in a yellow haze,
How did that help.

Yellow to green haze triangulation hadn’t gotten very far. The relationship between the green carpet, the plausible lawn outside and the upper left room did however provide some results. The perspectives gained increased the current value of the carpet; that was at least something. But then the haze seeped in and everything got fussy.

The haze was forced into a grid, a matrix so that it could be analyzed and put to rest. This endeavour was a complete waste of time. Haze’s tend to stay clear of grids and other forms of linear treatments, specially if it is to be reduced to a dot
