Concise Voids and Sediments consists of new artistic research exploring the productivity of repetition, time, folds, and the language of objects. The purpose was to make an artist book that examined and layered the conjunctions and interplay between touch and sight as an effort to render accessible the stubborn syntax of the sublime. The book, called under and so; even if afterwards – continually, has since gradually and materially expanded from the environment of the artist studio into this solo exhibition.
To this end, Marianne Skaarup Jakobsen’s new publication project gives viewers access to ideas surrounding the unlimited non-verbal speech of objects – or better yet – to the conversations objects have with each other without our cognition. The resulting process of assembly unravels the tension between the book and the installation, where these behave together as an environment, where artworks, refuse, and readymades unfold and merge in dialogue with one another in the exhibit.
Skaarup Jakobsen’s practice and inquiry is essentially a material investigation into the visual and linguistic aspects of the artwork. Where ideas of the infinite that the artist pursues, diversify questions of perception and how these often give the plasticity of her objects and their surfaces a feeling that time is present and non-present.
In this sense, the exhibit is a snapshot into Skaarup Jakobsen’s use of inks, paper, plaster, metals, and other materials to produce interrupted or ruptured sedimentary layers that illustrate a shattered continuity and aesthetic. Such as those broken or eroded layers that recall how entropy and time are still abstract concepts for how we relate to objects we no longer perceive.
Throughout Concise Voids and Sediments, the ‘golden thread that we entangle between furniture’*– between objects – can be engaged with and referred back to the book, since it will be available for viewing in relation to the overall installation and throughout the two-month period of the exhibit. During this period, additional copies are being folded and pressed to eventually form a numbered edition of 100 books.
