MAY 12 2023 – MAY 14 2023
For the gallery’s first edition of Market Art Fair, we will be showing a solo presentation by the Danish artist group SUPERFLEX with a focus on a neon, titled We are Having the Time of Our Lives and the Interspecies Contract in view of their recently showed work ‘Vertical Migration‘ installed at United Nations Headquarter, New York City, 2021.
Reminiscent of the commercial signage frequently found in urban landscapes and generally located on the tops of façades or buildings, We are Having the Time of Our Lives translates a familiar phrase into a text-based installation, consisting of an illuminated signboard made with ocean-blue LED letters mounted on an aluminium frame and weighed down by orange PVC sandbags. The viewer is invited to reflect upon our present role in the escalation of climate change, to consider an apocalyptic scenario, and to imagine a future world of lively, diverse and perhaps even humanlike lifeforms.
