NOW AND TOMORROW: Detached
• Days with event
Opening and presentation EIKON issue #95: Tue Sep 13, 19:00
Venue: EIKON Schaufenster, Electric Avenue
The exhibition "Detached" explores a new possibility on the idea of reproduction—a process playing a key role in capitalism. The collage emphasizes the consecutive results of mass-production such as loss of originality, especially in art and is the method of choice of NOW AND TOMORROW. Simultaneously, the artists analyze newly formed, in other words, reproduced objects, and question the resurrection of their uniqueness after detaching them from their original context. In the unique space of the EIKON Schaufenster, the artists create a site-specific installation which separates the audience from the over-saturated, mundane environment of everyday life, while inviting us to have an innovative view on the correlation between everyday objects and ourselves.
NOW AND TOMORROW is an artist duo, founded by Sergei Sviatchenko (DK) and Noriko Okaku (UK/JP) in 2014. The artists met in July 2010 when Noriko Okaku visited Denmark. At their first meeting, the artists found out that both of them share the fascination for the magic of collage art, which naturally made them collaborate together.
At the evening of the opening, the new issue of EIKON (#95) will be launched.
