Please join us in the Bookshop for an evening with the artist Adam Jeppesen, organised in collaboration with Black Box Projects. Adam Jeppesen will present his latest book Error, Object, Structure, published by Plethora, and talk about his practice in general.
This new publication includes more than a decade’s work by Adam Jeppesen – from the epic photographic journey of the Flatlands Camp Project of 2009 to the more recent monumental sculptural installation The Great Filter in 2019, which is currently on exhibition at Brandts Museum of Art and Visual Culture, Denmark. The book contains 63 colour plates from various series and projects with accompanying text contributions from Catherine Toriano (V&A), Sarah Allen (Tate Modern), Hinde Haest (Foam), Søren Gosvig Olesen (Univ. of Copenhagen), Mads Damsbo (Brandts), Leonard Koren (author of Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers, 1994 and Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts, 2015).
Adam Jeppesen is a Danish artist, based in Argentina. He creates work that addresses the materiality and transience of the photograph as an object. Much of Jeppesen's work is the result of a solitary 487-day journey from the North Pole to Antarctica in 2009 called The Flatlands Camp Project. The journey has left visible traces and blemishes on the photographs as he carried his film and camera equipment with him on the road, where the negatives picked up grit and dust along the way. Jeppesen celebrates these imperfect elements rather than tries to hide them. Coincidence, damage and imperfection are essential elements in his work. At a time when the image has become infinitely perfectible and reproducible, Jeppesen experiments with the photograph as a unique object that is subject to the forces of change and decay.
Black Box Projects specialises in contemporary photography and contemporary art that is created using photographic materials. Committed to working with artists who push the limits of traditional photographic practice, Black Box Projects does not keep a permanent space, instead arranging project-based exhibitions in order to tailor the experience to the individual needs of the artist and the work exhibited. Black Box Projects aims to be a pioneer of the changing gallery model, as well as presenting a transparent working model with artists, clients and other gallerists that fosters community, creativity and collaboration.
