Grimmuseum, Berlin

For ART-O-RAMA 2016, Berlin-based gallery Grimmuseum will present the latest project by Danish artist Merete Vyff Slyngborg (b. 1982).

Merete Vyff Slyngborg works for a living as an interior stylist. Days’ work becomes six shots for a lifestyle magazine. Objects are dragged in and out of vans from storehouses to locations, moved back and forth, matched and perhaps discarded in the end. It makes no difference whether it is an art book with a decorative cover, a sofa classic, a blue thingy or an actual work of art: Together they form a whole, the perfect setting for the perfect image, that must reflect something that is just about to happen – the next new.

The works by Merete Vyff Slyngborg draws attention to the dynamics between art, design, trends object and representation, in the transition between 2D and 3D, investigating the field of the image producing industry.

The works look at design that looks at art, to render mass-produced things unique and laden with meaning, and at art, which is being styled and arranged.
