That House is an Odd Fellow

Andreas Amble

17.09.2016 - 02.10.2016


Andreas Amble is working in a rich flora of materials, techniques, mediums and genres. In the exhibition That House is an Odd Fellow he investigates the endless contradictions and fragile truths that surrounds us in our everyday life, within close reach, but often hard to grip. Amble's installations are engaged in the poetry of translations and addresses both accessibility and impossibilities. The exhibition consists of structures that are built up, broken down and reassembled or rebuilt. Delineated, transformative and morphing. Structures of text, video and built installation is standing without stability.

The room felt funky, riddled with treats and covered in a yellow haze, that kind you cannot shake. The carpet and wall color arrangement made sense, despite the ridiculous size of that green monstrosity. Despite that it was softness, green softness.

Green softness in a yellow haze.

The jagged coastline did not intervene, nor disturb more than what you would expect.

Jagged coastlines in a yellow haze, How did that help.

Yellow to green haze triangulation hadn’t gotten very far. The relationship between the green carpet, the plausible lawn outside and the upper left room did however provide some results. The perspectives gained increased the current value of the carpet; that was at least something. But then the haze seeped in and everything got fussy.

The haze was forced into a grid, a matrix so that it could be analyzed and put to rest. This endeavour was a complete waste of time. Haze’s tend to stay clear of grids and other forms of linear treatments, specially if it is to be reduced to a dot.
