About the Exhibit
Jakob Kolding’s work has long revolved around the experience of life in the contemporary built environment, particularly the relationships and contradictions that emerge between how architectural spaces are planned and how they are actively used. His works incorporate a wide range of source material, sampling and mixing the visual idioms of modernist art and architecture, sociological inquiry, and such popular cultural forms as hip-hop and electronic music. Reflecting a strong scenographic turn in Kolding’s recent practice, the exhibition centers on a group of sculptural figures made from photomontage prints mounted on life-sized wooden armatures.
