Exhibition:

"Agnosia"
Jasper Jacobsen


Opening: Wednesday 18th of January, 6-8pm
Dates: 18th of January – 11th of February, 2017

Derived from Ancient Greek, the term Agnosia was first applied to the realms of psychopathology by Freud to name a range of sensory-perceptual disorders. The condition – sometimes known as ‘mind-blindness’ – is characterised by the incapacity to recognise and interpret sensory information, leaving the patient floating in a void of ‘unrecognition’.

The assisted readymades that constitute Jasper Jacobsen’s “Agnosia” float in a similar void. Here, the familiar becomes the foreign – matter and meaning twitching, slipping, and sliding – with no simple reading immune from distortion, drift, or collapse.

Recurrent motifs of time, being and death suffuse these interventions, as everyday objects morph into precarious ciphers; quietly but compulsively dismantling our conceptions of the real.
