Joe Scanlan

Joe Scanlan (1961)

Woont in New York. Werkt in New York.

Joe Scanlan is an artist whose work takes multiple forms, from sculpture and design to publications and fictional personae. Indeed, there is a willful subterfuge running through much of his work, as exemplified in works that address the political economy of site-specific labor (Massachusetts Wedding Bed); or co-scripting the life and work of a fictional artist in collaboration with professional actors (Donelle Woolford); or in the design and manufacture of portable architecture that can inhabit the body of a host museum (Thingstahtfall Pavilion). Scanlan is internationally renowned for the dark humor and conceptual rigor of his work. He is also a widely read, discussed, and translated writer for such venues as Artforum, frieze, and Parkett, social media forums such as Facebook, and his website, www.thingsthatfall.com.

Over de kunstenaar

Als een boetiek in de Negen Straatjes
Scanlan kan met recht de spiritueel erfgenaam van Broodthaers genoemd worden - en niet alleen omdat hij in 2014 de Broodthaers Society of America oprichtte, die even fictief is als het Musée d'Art Moderne: Département des Aigles van zijn grote voorbeeld. De Amerikaan laat kunst, commercie en ambacht in elkaar overvloeien. (...) Voor zijn huidige tentoonstelling maakte hij boekentasjes van over­hemden die midden in de galerie aan een rek hangen, alsof je een boetiek in de Negen Straatjes bent binnengelopen. Niet alleen Broodthaers gaat door de conceptuele gehaktmolen. Palermo is direct afgeleid van het werk Blaue Scheibe und Stab (1968) van de jong overleden Blinky Palermo. De blauwe balk en cirkel dienen als basis voor een nieuw lettertype. Uitgebeende abstractie wordt gereedschap voor talige communicatie.
