Rubiks Kök, 2007 (Rubik's Kitchen) by Michael Johansson

Michael Johansson obviously likes things. The Swedish artist finds the ‘material’ for his overloaded installations – randomly selected objects – at flea markets. In terms of the way he uses them, it seems he doesn’t expect them to function or to be useful; the main requirement is they match the arrangement. He meticulously stacks and interlaces them to create highly composed, compact volumes and narrative assemblages.

Some of Michael Johansson’s works are currently showcased within the group exhibition ‘Meaning of Void’ at Galleri Christoffer Egelund in Copenhagen (May 21 – June 19, 2010).
