ASGER DYBVAD LARSEN
NEW BOND STREET LONDON


OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, ASGER DYBVAD LARSEN HAS HAD HIS PRIMARY FOCUS ON PAINTING, ITS ART HISTORICAL BALLAST AND AN EXPLORATORY APPROACH TO THE PROCESSING OF THE TRADITIONAL MATERIALS OF PAINTING. THUS, IN HIS WORK
PRODUCTION THERE ARE CLEAR REFERENCES TO ICONIC ARTISTIC WORKS AND CURRENTS. FOR EXAMPLE, HE WORKS WITH
ACRYLIC CASTING OF PAINT TRAYS, THUS CREATING A DIRECT FORMALISTIC LINK TO FRANK STELLA’S STRIPED GEOMETRIC WORKS.
WHEN USING THE PAINT TRAY AS AN IMAGE, HE ALSO CONNECTS TO HIS OWN PRACTICE IN THE STUDIO, WHERE HIS PROCESS
IS BASED ON CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION AND DESTRUCTION OF WORKS. IT IS AN OPEN PROCESS IN WHICH THE WORKS THAT
HE IS WORKING ON ARE IN CONSTANT FLUX. THEY ARE CUT UP AND PUT TOGETHER IN NEW WAYS, THEY GET APPLIED MATERIAL AND
ARE TORN APART AND SEWN TOGETHER AGAIN. THE CHARACTERISTIC OF ASGER DYBVAD LARSEN’S PRODUCTION THUS BECOMES
HIS PROCESS, WHERE THE INDIVIDUAL WORK BECOMES AN IMAGE OF THE CONSTANT ARTISTIC EXCHANGE AND DEVELOPMENT,
RATHER THAN IT BECOMES A WORK FOR ITSELF.
THE STUDIO ACTS AS AN ARCHIVE WHICH HE CAN FLIP BACK AND FORTH IN, AND WHERE HE CAN SEPARATE, COMPOSE AND
CONSTRUCT NEW CONTEXTS FROM INDEPENDENT WORKS, PROCESSES AND THOUGHTS. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THIS ARCHIVE
IS IN CONSTANT MOTION AND DEVELOPMENT, AND THEREFORE THE INDIVIDUAL WORKS APPEAR AS SNAPSHOTS OF THE ARTISTIC
JOURNEY THROUGH THE TIMES AND PLACES OF THE ARCHIVE. HE DENOTES HIMSELF AS A; «... POWERLESS ARCHIVIST FOR
THE INDIGENOUS FAMILY TREE WHOSE BRANCHES I CONSTANTLY BREAK OFF AS PROOF THAT THE STRUCTURE REALLY EXISTS».
