Jonathan Muecke OPEN OBJECTS at Volume Gallery

Jonathan Muecke OPEN OBJECTS at Volume Gallery

18 March '16

Volume Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition from Jonathan Muecke, titled Open Objects.

Open Objects represents Jonathan Muecke’s third solo exhibition, comprised of eight objects that work both backward and forward in his practice, and as always, past ‘design’. By removing this linear nature of thinking, Muecke presents projects that retain a timeless quality. The projects represent Muecke's continuing comprehensive study of each object’s qualities, and dissection of their definition with the intention of engaging the user.

The objects in Vol. 34 are both challenging and generous in their intention. Muecke’s projects are a continuation of common design typologies, allowing the user a comfortable starting point to think beyond their familiar notions of use and material; each piece demands a certain quiet contemplation. Utilizing experimental materials and unique functionality, each piece removes our limitations of understanding and encourages the viewer to engage and interact, rather than react to the object.

Muecke creates a dialog with the user by 'disturbing or collapsing the perimeters of an object such as geometry or depth of field or perspective. His objects demand to be figured out - the lack of directives as to how exactly to use Muecke's designs invites intuitive forms of interaction'- thus creating an open relationship between user and object. (Field Essays, Sophie Krier, 2013).

Jonathan Muecke operates around the edge of design; he emphasizes each object’s conceptual purpose and universal meaning. Open Objects - his third solo exhibition with this title - is his continual practice to un-define objects while defining something larger.
