Karl Larsson @ Shanaynay, Oct 20 – Nov 17

18 October 2016

Karl Larsson presents solo exhibition Camilla at Paris’  Shanaynay opening October 20 and running to November 17.

Larsson is a multi-disciplinary artist and poet, with a focus on ‘spatial experience, embodiment and activism.’ The title of the show is a reference to the infant daughter in Virgil’s Aeneid, who was saved from harm by being thrown across a river. The press release frames the show within this moment of travelling through the air, the formless horror;

“Destruction of worlds, outside of the room. Destruction of rooms. Some children end up floating in the Mediterranean sea. They appear, then disappear, re-appear and start circulating. Sometimes a baby spins and spins until many years have passed. I don’t want to ask myself what conclusion there is to draw from all the data in the world. I want to ask what there is to unlearn from what is disappearing in front of our eyes?”

CARREFOUR @ Komplot, Mar 21 – Apr 12

20 March 2014

The CARREFOUR group exhibition is opening at Brussels’ Komplot space, opening March 21 and running to April 12.

Featuring Caroline Pekle, Karl Larsson, Wolfgang Fütterer and Nicolas Matranga (with Rūta Juneviciūtė), the show is presumably referencing the French multi-national retailer of the same name and comes accompanied by a stream of disjointed words and their associations that the experience of shopping often is.

Within the lexical current is the fragmented art jargon of “can hang”, “as an object as a object” and “performance as non existing talk object” drawing on parallels with art as commodity and ending with a definitive “all talk”.

See the Komplot website for details. **
