Editorial collaboration with the Danish-artist John Kørner
and the designers Smith
, London, to develop the exhibition catalogue for the artist's first solo show exhibition in London
, at the Victoria Miro Gallery
(25 November–22 December 2006). The exhibition
comprised a number of new large-scale paintings and ceramic works. The artist turned part of the project space of the gallery into a fictional factory, painted floor to ceiling in his signature ‘hazard’ yellow, recalling the recent exhibition 'ARoS Bank' at the ARoS Århus Kunstmuseum
, Denmark (13 June–10 September 2006) where he created a gesamtkunstwerk in homage to the bank.
Following is an excerpt from Max Andrews’s essay:
"There is a spirit of frank lucidity to Kørner's enterprise (where even things that are problematic try their best to be clearly visible) that resists unnecessary obscurantism or any notion that the paintings or the artist somehow have access to privileged information. What do they think? What do you think? What is the chap on the bicycle thinking? What's the problem? In '2006 Problems', problems emanate from the space in between the two workers having a picnic and jamming on their instruments in 'Music and Problems'. Problems are conceits that sprout like errant thought bubbles, or populate buildings, the known and the unknown coexisting. In Conversation a couple discuss their problems while riding a bike; not least, it would seem, the problem of how not to fall off it."
