People who have saved this event:


For the final installation of the exhibition series Magna Carta Shelf Life, German artist Felix Oehmann’s maximal installation challenges the constraints of 3 ½.


Hungry for Touch dominates our view with its scale and rawness. Playing with flatness, dimensionality and ever-searching for the tipping point inherent in material, Oehmann creates a tension and heightens our most physical sense of being present. Appropriating culturally ubiquitous objects – a chair, a slice of cake, a t-shirt – the artist finds profoundness and radical states within simple, under-considered forms, setting them free from their own aesthetic or functional rules, and questioning their powers of representation.
