Tue Greenfort: Photosynthesis

Regular price $17.00

Tax included.

With playful certainty, Tue Greenfort uses detailed interventions, subtle alterations and imperceptible influences on functional processes to test “man’s freedom”. The processes remain intact, unchanged, yet the interventions reveal opportunities which are there to be taken. This lightness of touch allows an opposition that eschews the pompous political gesture by focusing again and again on aesthetic or playful elements.

(Maria Muhle)

This publication appears on the occasion of the Tue Greenfort’s solo exhibitionPhotosynthesis at Witte de With (24 June – 6 August 2006).

Tue Greenfort: Photosynthesis is a bi-lingual German/English book featuring images from Greenfort’s exhibition at Witte de With, an interview between the artist and curator Zoë Gray, a newly commissioned essay on the artist’s work by Maria Muhle and extracts from the Danish scientist Jesper Hoffmeyer’s book Signs of Meaning in the Universe, which has greatly influenced Greenfort’s thinking about nature.

The publication Tue Greenfort : Photosynthesis was published by Witte de With in collaboration with Lukas & Sternberg.
