Amy Hunting

Faithful Copy: Objects and Drawings, Perception and reality, variation and details

20 Aug 2011 - 25 Sep 2011

It is a pleasure to be allowed to introduce Amy Huntings first solo show. The exhibition has a sharp focus on exciting problems.

And it takes place in a room that opens up the things for the visitors. It is clean, concrete and wonderful free for the empty phrases of the design- and art world, and it is an expression of the aesthetic world of Amy.
First a little about the artist: Amy is Norwegian – in a sense. She grew up in Drammen, has her education from The Danish Design School, and has since lived in London, where she works as a freelancer. She has some contacts with Norwegian designers, among other things through the yearly arrangement “Norwegian Prototypes”, which next time will take place at Christmas time.
She has indicated the subject of the exhibition in the title “Faithful Copy - Objects and Drawings whit the subtitle perception and reality, variation and details”. It shows, as I interpret it, her exploration of how we apprehend the reality by our senses, and how we reproduce it. She has, in particular been interested in what’s happening when we reproduce the same reality several times. This she problematize in different ways in the three parts of the exhibition: the anamorphoscope, the three-dimensional objects and the drawings.
In the corner of the room stands something that can remind of an old peep show in the shape of a cylindrical mirror and some pieces of curved boards. The pieces looks like “normal” straight boards in the mirror. The reflection and at this looks more real than the material world we stand above. It challenges our prejudiced ideas of what we see and of what reality really is, the thing or the picture of the thing.

The three-dimensional objects have a practical function and can be characterize as furniture of storage. They are unique specimen made of tree and wool felt, gently cut out by hand by the artist and compound with brass screws. They are still constructed in such a way that they can be flat-paced and can be compound by anyone. They can also be stacked in different ways in accordance to ones wishes. They can look like reasonable mass produced plywood furniture. But in reality they are individual objects with a precise use of material and colour expression that tells their own story about how they are constructed, about that which carry and about that which is being carried and about what they can contain. The artist has in other words made a mix, which allow us as spectators to approach it in the IKEA-way. In this way she has challenged our accustomed comprehension of the border between art and design, mass production and “one of a kind”, subjective experience and repetition.
The two-dimensional works, the drawings have no practical function. Here it is the repetition of the eye and the hand, in the form of copying that is the subject of investigation. A photo has been copied total 50 times, every day, sometime 2-3 times a day. It has become a series of pictures, which are quite similar, but far from identical, each with very different details and with its own individuality. This shows the impossibility of creating identical resemblance / photographic likeness with the help of the hand and the senses. It always ends with individual expressions, which are loaded with feelings. It is a strong and important conclusion, with ontological implications. (komma, istedet for punktum?) Which, is handed over to the spectator for further speculation.
Amy Hunting’s exhibition can be understood both as an art project and a design project. But it is her education as a designer that has made her capable to see the problem and to find ways to examine them. They are in many ways a continuation of the post war modernism`s investigation of perception and search for variations in products presented in series (seriefremstilte produkter). But while the intention of modernisms designers was to find objective, universal laws, Amy shows us how the subjectivity guides what we perceive and what we do, even when the intention is accurate understanding and reiteration of the reality.
The exhibition invites us to continue the investigations ourselves, by the help of Amy´s stimulating and sense appealing works. Look at them, touch them and experience them.
