Copenhagen, September 1-3, 2017

We look forward to welcoming you in booth no. 26 at Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen, where we will present works by Linder, Tony Matelli and Jacob Dahlgren.

Linder (b. 1954, United Kingdom)

Linder is an internationally celebrated artist who applies the principles of collage to the visual languages of graphic design, popular culture, fashion and fine art in the production of photomontages, performances and installations. The core of her work is a continuous exploration of desire, cultural expectations and the female body as commodity. Occasionally referring to her works as biopsies, Linder’s collages manipulate, disrupt and play with porn and glamour, exposing the latter as something we should be wary of. Examining the way that women are depicted across visual culture, these collages draw attention to institutionalised misogyny. Denouncing the artificiality of groomed and tame femininity and revealing the performative aspects of gendered and social differences, the works are sometimes provocative – and also funny.

Born 1954 in Liverpool, lives and works in Heysham, United Kingdom. Initially, Linder rose to fame as an artist and musician in the punk/post-punk arts and music scene in Manchester in the mid 1970s. Recent institutional exhibitions include Linder: femme/objet, at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover and Tate St. Ives (2013) and Pretty Girl. No.1, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and PS1/Museum of Modern Art, New York (2007).

Tony Matelli (b. 1971, USA)

Tony Matelli’s work displays an uncanny fusion of conceptual clarity and technical breadth and many issues of his generation — alienation, ambivalence, and decadence — manifest themselves directly in his work. His sculptures possess a concision and frankness that can simultaneously seem crass and profound. Each of his works possesses a distinct provocation; a protest against playing by the universally accepted rules or conventions that exist as an inseparable part of the world that surrounds us. His sculptures can best be described as anti-monuments, re-interpreting the tradition of hyperrealism in American sculpture.

Tony Matelli lives and works in Brooklyn, USA. He holds a MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. His work is to be found in major public collections across the globe and has recently been the subject of major mid-career retrospectives; Tony Matelli: A Human Echoat ARoS, Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark and Bergen Kunstmuseum, Norway.

Jacob Dahlgren (b. 1970, Sweden)

Jacob Dahlgren’s work is concerned with a dialogue between the authoritative singularity of pure formal abstraction and its position within a variable, complex and social shared culture. Dahlgren’s repetitious collections of ubiquitous and ordinary objects, often domestic, industrially manufactured; stand in their gestalt form as proxy for High Modernist Abstract Painting and for all of the ideological territory that Twentieth Century Art Theory has staked out for it. The contributing objects, however, signify a collective and human aspect of society, each representing an individual choice, to be used or consumed in a unique way by its consumer. Together these objects stand for the group or community, and as such they become democratic rather than authored.

Jacob Dahlgren, born 1970 in Stockholm, where he currently lives and works. He received his MFA from the Royal College of Art in 1999. He has exhibited widely in institutions such as KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki (2013, 2011 and 2010), Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2010, 2013), Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (2010), Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2011) and Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2006). In 2007 he represented Sweden at the 52nd Venice Biennale.
