Johan Rosenmunthe, who is responsible for one of our favourite projects in last year’s It’s Nice That Annual has got a new show on display at Oslo’s MELK gallery. In this mixed media exhibition, Johan displays his recent studies into rocks and the way we use them in our day-to-day lives. In Silent Counts Rosenmunthe “examines rocks as tactile objects through different instruments, angles and compositions. Stones are hard, brutal and dismissive, but also share an oddly romantic aura of transcendence and time. Stones are weight, surface, age, numbers. Organized and systematically he looks at them in a geological perspective, and applies to them a nostalgic, scientific and philosophical point of view.”
Make of that what you will, that photo of a rock sat casually on a photocopier is fantastic – if you’re in Oslo, get down there ! You can see some installation shots here.
Silent Count will be on show at MELK, Oslo, from March 15 – April 14
