Queens Park Railway Club is delighted to present the group exhibition 'Build then burn' in association with Exhibition Space Sydhavn Station. Through this exhibition each artist approaches the deconstruction of familiar materials, processes and imagery in an attempt to disrupt quotidian notions of reality, history and art.
Guertler’s works are concerned with the tensions emerging between the cool calculated conceptual art and the soft burning urges of creation. Guertler works on series on paper but recently has developed some small scale sculptures, made up of the remnants of twelve years of art making.
Jameson has developed a process, which involves the deconstruction and reconstruction of culturally significant objects and areas in order to gain an insight into our relationship with technology science and history. Taking the form of ‘studio experiments’ his current films explore the materiality of objects, and of film itself, either by re-appropriating physical objects and materials and changing there intended use or pushing them beyond their capacity to function.
Piper’s work is an outpouring of the experience of consumption and consumption itself. Small canvases made on a daily basis combine pithy painting experiments with the dross and drivel of everyday life, both physical and digital. Collecting images and materials, Piper’s work is a combination of misunderstandings as opportunities and knowledge as fiction. Working regularly and rapidly Piper generates a rhythm rather than a style and seizes the opportunity to make everything a painting.
Luxemburg presents three video works each using found imagery from mainstream media disrupted in an attempt to explore and critique ideas of identity, history, nationality and artifice.
