A project by the Danish-Swiss artist duo Yarisal & Kublitz will be presented simultaneously along with Jan Christensen’s exhibition.
Yarisal & Kublitz have become well known for their machines and installations, which are characterized, to some extent, by an absurdity similar to the works of Swiss artist Roman Signer. Yarisal & Kublitz works function in a trap-like way: they instinctively anticipate the moment of surprise, in which things may seem to be familiar but, after closer consideration, the immanent codes rewrite themselves, suddenly changing the meaning and the context.
At c/o – Gerhardsen Gerner, Yarisal & Kublitz present the installation “Just Like Starting Over” (2010), which plays with icons that have changed into symbols through effects and coding.
Ronnie Yarisal was born in 1981 in Genf and Katja Kublitz was born 1978 in Copenhagen. The duo lives and works in Berlin and New York.
In addition to numerous international gallery exhibitions, their work has been shown in Kunstmuseum Bern, Kunstverein Wiesbaden, and the Charlottenborg Museum of Art in Copenhagen.
