Exhibition opening with performance by the artist
Henrik Jacob is showing an installation at gallery Crystal Ball which in a charming way plays with the perspectives of the exhibition itself. You could assume Henrik Jacob cuts the recipients view wittingly in halves. Since often perception is limited, Jacob offers half in his setting as well. Henrik Jakobs installations irritate in a light and humorous way our will of interpretation of art works and the connected myth. Furthermore the artist presents a selection of his well known plasticine pictures. The modelling ductile material opens and transcends the artist’s mode. It`s becoming an agent in subverting monumental artists gestures. Finger and nailprints of the galerists, curators and buyers leave marks on his work and constantly change it. The exhibition is accompanied by fortune telling from the artist’s hands about the success of the presentation.
