Untitled (Shelf)

Bainbridge, Eric (1996) Untitled (Shelf). [Artefact]

Item Type: Artefact


Part of the 'Shelf Show' curated by Torgny Wilcke.

The focus of the exhibition is to bring works of art together that physically may seem very much alike, but when placed next to one another appears to reflect very different strategies and aims in their presentation and making.

Many of the art works or part of artworks look like a shelf or fulfill the physical definition of a shelf. But the idea and use of shelves are highly different from artist to artist and from the everyday object known as a shelf.

"But if you give them (the viewers) a small experience which is somehow confusing or profound, but in the realm of their own world, then it doesn't have to be translated, it's already there. Because it's not that far away from theirs", American artist Barbara Bloom.
