Reisinger Multidisciplinary Design Studio —Based in Barcelona working worldwide
Job Interview / Copenhagen Exhibition —2019For his exhibition at Last Resort, Andrés Reisinger has created no less than 58 digital proposals for exhibitions at the gallery as well as a new monumental sculpture which has to be experienced at the gallery within an original contextenvisioned by the artist."For his first solo exhibition at the Copenhagen gallery Last Resort, Barcelona-based digital artist and designer Andres Reisinger created more than 50 different 3D renderings for exhibition proposals before settling, with gallery director Peter Amby, on the final concept. Called “Job Interview,” the exhibition is meant to evoke an interview’s feeling of discomfort, and it features a monumental pink recycled PVC sphere that takes up a portion of the gallery space, leaving little room for exhibition-goers. By showing images of both the final exhibition and the 58 proposals online, however, the show also brings up a relatively thorny question: How much does the final exhibition concept actually matter if most people are going to view the exhibition only virtually online?"Jill Singer x SightUnseen
The letter that Andrés wrote to Peter (Last Resort owner)Dear Peter,
I would like to introduce you my new show with an image of a space I have specially created. I think it’s a greatexample of unforeseeable nothing. What Bergson calls the “unforeseeable nothing which is everything in a work ofart,” an unforeseeable nothing that takes time.It reminds me of a 1991 lecture by John Cleese (of Monty Python) on creativity, in which two of the five requiredfactors he lists are time.
In this time of extreme overstimulation, I have entitled this exhibition « Job Interview » .A term used in the industry of productive time and efficiency, but reinterpreted as a sculpture that makes you feelthe same uncomfortable situation from moment one. Under the pressures, which are all too familiar to us, we tendto maintain tunnel vision at times when we really need to step back and contemplate the wider view.
There’s also a compilation of all the work I have developed for the creation of this exhibition. I kind of feel weakshowing all what has been going in my mind during the last 3 months, and by accepting that weakness it erases anykind of friction between me and the work.
This is how the name of this show came to me. Job Interview is me creating a selection of received excitationsduring a specific period of time. Which we may all agree with Bergson.
