Martin Erik Andersen at Cutlog, Paris 18th - 21st October20 September 2012
Petit Jardin (sous les pavés la plage) I (2012) - proposal sketch for outside of Bourse, Paris
The streets of Paris are world renowned for their beauty and for their revolutions. For the Cutlog art fair, Martin Erik Andersen (DK b. 1964) in association with Isis Gallery (UK) will sculpturally arrange the planting of a small tree outside the Bourse in honour of both of these beautiful aspects. The tree will feature Andersen’s familiar register of materials in support of this young tree - steel supports, plaster, wire, wax, cigarette ash... The work will be created spontaneously from found and gathered materials within close quarters of the installation site. Andersen will also curate and install a mirroring work within the Isis gallery stand at the fair which will feature a twin tree, setting up a mysterious tension between the two locations. In addition, Andersen has invited David Tibet to participate in setting this environment, with a sequence of extraordinary new drawings. Tibet's most recent exhibition was at White Columns, New York.
