Tasted Shapes

Where do abstraction and the non-representational intersect with the social and political world? In the works of Lavman, Landgreen and Bechmann the argument inherent is that the esthetic experience is larger than what meets the eye. The experience is constructed by the viewer and therefore an activity. An activity, mobilizing the viewer and the body of the viewer. Shapes are not only understood by a negotiation within the canvas but also negotiated into meaning drawing on previous experiences within the realms of life. By experiences with other, e.g. time, sound, power, exchange or taste. 

In this exhibition something ineffably abstract is made into a concrete force or agency, an aesthetically informed spectacle through the strange agency of abstraction. The abstract is a clue to the irregular shapes we experience in understanding both the tangible vibrant matter around us and the social, political and in general abstract world in which we live. The world as a strange but present clash of abstract matter and meaning. 

Perhaps we should re-inscribe this still-emerging narrative we call art, with a stubborn sense of materiality and a vibrant itness. An itness that employs abstract images as participants in social efforts. This could be where abstraction and the non-representational intersect with the social and political.
