FOS | WATCHMAKER | 10TH OCTOBER – 23RD NOVEMBER 2012 @maxwigram

Danish artist FOS is to establish a strangely familiar, perhaps puzzling, structure for Watchmaker, his third exhibition at Max Wigram Gallery.

By constructing a deceptive perfunctory entrance and fabric covered corridor with window display, the artist, whose work often includes the participatory environment, announces his intention to question the constant need to counter flux with stability, to frame our surroundings.

Inside, through the constructed entrance, a range of objects, from the three armed brass chandelier which light the  bronze sculpture and  crystalline salt reliefs, to the glass covered vitrines which display various sculptural pieces, allude to varying levels of function.

Inside the mock shop, or real gallery, separate spaces housing, for instance, the film projected in the round and the series of cabinets, all of which individually and collectively morph between the poetic, the real, and back again.
