Some time ago i had the honour and pleasure of saying (and writing) a few opening words for this wonderful exhibition of works by Abel Wolff, Johannes Langkamp and Matthias Grothus at A Gallery Named Sue.
The dyslectic reader might think it is about suicidal functions, but in fact it is all about the opposite.
All three artists have been working on a kind of continuum in which things both change and remain the same.
In Wolff’s work it is very much about the ongoing process directing itself, in this case scanning and subsequent printing.
Grothus gives new life to older mechanisms and
let them co-operate in what can be seen as a comment on time and the present.
Langkamp’s ideas derive from what is actually happening in between the camera lens and the object it is targeting.
It is a well presented ensemble, in which the aesthetics of the three installations follow their functions like in musical instruments.
