Object, The Undeniable Success of Operations

Monographic presentations often imply a self-reflective moment, a moment in which the artistic process of the artist is briefly frozen and can be subject to investigation.

The exhibition ‘Object, The Undeniable Success of Operations’ is constructed around that fact. The basis of the exhibition was the wish to do a monographic presentation of the work of Falke Pisano.
Her lecture/performances, sculptures, publications and videos move in the abstract space between language and object, in a process in which these two are continually brought into a dependent and thus fluctuating relation with one another through the indirect presence of the artist.

In ‘Object, The Undeniable Success of Operations’ that work in turn is placed in dialogue with works by nine other artists who investigate the relativity of language and object and the position of the artist and spectator in their work. Their work not only illuminates Pisano’s present artistic position, but also interrogates it by supplying other possibilities and alternatives for it -- and thus endorsing its permanently impermanent character.

The exhibition was assembled by Falke Pisano herself in collaboration with curator Krist Gruijthuijsen.
