Jonas Lund – Studio Practice
6th September – 11th October
Opening: Saturday 6th September 17:00
Boetzelaer|Nispen is pleased to present Studio Practice, the first solo show by Swedish artist Jonas Lund at the gallery.
For Studio Practice, Lund has transformed the gallery into an art production line by hiring four assistants who will work full time during the gallery’s open hours throughout the run of his exhibition. Their task is to produce work inspired by the guidelines set out in a 300 page book that Lund created expressly for them. Once a work has been completed, it will be reviewed online by an advisory board consisting of artists, art advisors, gallerists and collectors. The board will assess the work so that Lund can better decide whether the work should be signed or destroyed. The entire process will be publicly accessible in the gallery space and on a dedicated website (studio-practice.biz). The website will include live footage of the gallery, assessments of the advisory board as well as Lund's final decision and comments regarding specific works.
Jonas Lund (1984, Sweden) creates paintings, sculpture, photography and websites that incorporate data from his studies of art world trends and behavior. He earned an MA at Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2013) and a BFA at Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam (2009). He has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles (2014), Showroom MAMA, Rotterdam (2013); and has had work included in group exhibitions including at Eyebeam, New York; New Museum, New York; Xpo Gallery, Paris; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and De Hallen, Haarlem. His work has been written about on Rhizome, Huffington Post, Furtherfield and Wired.
