Kasper Holten's 12 reliefs
We love - therefore we are!
The reliefs on Dating DK's wall are of another tradition than the modern. The twelve figures wave their hands with a satanic smile on their lips, to all the mortals who have forgotten, that there is something else other than minimalism and atheism. The creatures represent another time and they insist on an existence of their own of myth, faith and the narrative. They have brought the nattative in their books and tubes of paint.
The artistic expressions is to some degree like the medieval descriptions of the irrational, when faith was more present, Nietzsche had not yet declared the death of God, and mysticsm was florescence. The creatures are also recognizable as alien, they fascinate and repel. They have human proportions, but in a twisted and foreshortening manner. Some have reptile feet and some have animal like hands. The creatures are rekognizable, but their bodys are constructed, and composed of parts normally seperated. Reality is deconstructed and another reality created.
The other reality is beyond the limits of reationalism, it is the domain of myth and the irrational, but it is before Freud and The Interpretation of Dreams, before André Breton, the Surrealist and subconsciousness. These creatures insist on the irrational as something real, not something hidden in a freudian mind. This is not dreamlike versions, but representations of another real reality.
