GL STRAND presents the first institutional solo exhibition by the young Danish artist Marie Rud Rosenzweig. Through various media and with inspiration from Philip K. Dick’s fictional universe, Rud Rosenzweig explores our relationship with the everyday objects we apparently carelessly leave lying around us.
A key point of departure for this body of work is Philip K. Dick’s seminal novel from 1968: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? In the book, the author introduces the idea of the ‘kipple’ as a small discarded object which, despite its designation as useless, has the ability to appear as living and reproduce.
With the exhibition KIPPLE, Marie Rud Rosenzweig builds on this idea that the objects we surround ourselves with can take on a life and personality of their own, separate to their original function. Moreover, when we finish using these objects or discard them, they become symbolic of specific life experiences. The exhibition presents a number of new paintings, a spatial intervention with flooring panels and a series of collaborative photographs which together form a total installation expending on the concept of the kipple.
