Change is an inevitable force in this world, and one Danish artist has come up with a way to encapsulate that notion into observable processes.
40-year-old Henrik Menné opened his first solo show in over a year on October 11, entitled “400S,” at an exhibition space north of Copenhagen. Menné creates machines that undergo repetitive motions, warping singular materials such as wax or stone until they are either no longer intact or are completely unrecognizable. It is procedural work that is not complete until it is recycled or destroyed; he considers the aspect of viewing the artwork in process, and the material simply the vehicle for change. The new show, “400S,” consists of a machine that is more than five-meters-high, slowly creating two cylinder-shaped objects over the course of the exhibition. Check out some of Menné’s work above.
