AVLSKARL GALLERY

Avlskarl Gallery was founded in 2008 by Morten Avlskarl. The gallery represents a select group of emerging and established artists and is committed to introducing art, in all media, to an international audience. At Market Art Fair, Avlskarl Gallery will show works by Sergej Jensen and Gregor Hildebrandt that have never been on view before.

Michael Sailstorfer

Michael Sailstorfer (1979, Germany) primarily works with sculptures and installations as well as painting, performance, photography and film. His conceptual-adjacent aesthetics revolve around a notion of sculptural expansion, which refers to the ability of his art to transcend its own format by deploying into the surrounding space. Ranging in scale from nearly imperceptible interventions to highly elaborate productions, his minimalistic and often absurd visions poetically disrupt the everyday. Whether car tires, wrecking balls, popcorn machines or simple trees, familiar objects are systematically diverted from their original functions and frames of references into alternative contexts of meaning.

Gregor Hildebrandt

Gregor Hildebrandt (1974, Germany) makes use of pre-recorded cassette tapes as material in his pictures and installations. The tapes are applied directly onto canvases and photographic prints. Although Hildebrandt’s work makes formal reference to Minimalism, the addition of a great number of subjective and autobiographical citations actually deliberately repudiates this strategy. For Hildebrandt, the cassette tape as artistic medium, especially in its original function of storage medium, fulfils an important function: it enables the artist to add a further “invisible” dimension to his pictures. Playing with perception in this way, the picture is completed in the head of the viewer.

Sergej Jensen
(Market XL)

Sergej Jensen (1973, Denmark) works with a wide range of materials and formal references. Primarily known for his textile works, his lyrical compositions incorporate a variety of fabrics, from burlap and linen to silk and wool. Working within the idiom of minimalist painting, Jensen takes its material support – the canvas – and sews, bleaches, stretches or stains the cloth to create works that waver between abstraction and representation.

One work by Sergej Jensen will be on view at the section Market XL, inside the Sculpture Hall.
