Carsten Nicolai, Anti, 2004.Regular geometric forms represent systematic thinking and the interrelationship between mathematics, optics, art and philosophy. anti is a geometrical form, a distorted cube, truncated on top and bottom to obtain rhombic and triangular faces. It reacts to the magnetic field of bodies, enabling an interaction with the visitor while its mechanism remains hidden. anti refuses instant recognition. Its black, light-absorbent surface and monolith-like crystalline shape, that derives from Albrecht Dürer’s engraving Melancholia I (1514), confronts the viewer, trying both to mask its form and to disguise its function and thereby absorbing information.

Johan Muyle - B. au bord des lèvres (1992)

Composed of diverse elements, Muyle’s works frequently include movement, sound and/or light, elements which at first sight make the pieces seem carnivalesque. The tangible components generally consist of found objects, flea market finds, and paintings executed by others. For instance, Muyle’s commissioned the Cine Banners Painters in Madras, India, creators of billboard portraits advertising popular movies, to execute large-scale paintings from images he provided. Muyle followed their work closely before incorporating it into his own kinetic installations.
