Claus Haxholm - Former Commodity #2


Gallery SØ is hosting second part of Former Commodity, an exhibition series by publishing

platform Sensorisk Verden. In this edition Claus Haxholm exhibits a variety of fabric sculptures, in

conjunction with two sound pieces which is released as part of the exhibition.

Fabric and motion seem to be closely linked, commodity, ornamentation, extension of the body.

Transport. The movement forms the music and the fabric can be a

carrier of many elements and materials. Makes noise, moves timbral parts, gives

the body more options and layers. A body that is present and interpret its

surroundings. Virtual or in the most hands-on way. Meanings and hints can be

rotated in different directions. But with some core points. Wind and body. Water and

sound. Energy and thought. Nothing is complete standstill, but there is the intention,

which is different, and where do one chose to be in these flows? How much of

one's own intention bleed through the world’s/nature’s more un-intentional movement patterns?

There is a desire to improvise with these elements. Compose

with them and form a different type of woven works, used fabric, with history and

function, into a new field where the function is another and the history gets

stretched out. Materials and mind acrobatics. Maybe just a dance of thoughts.


See u soon!
