Mie Hørlyck Mogensen is a Danish born artist with a history of public art installations that compel viewers to reconsider their surroundings.  Her sculptural and video based works deal primarily with tools–both real and imagined, functional and nonsensical.

For the exhibition at the Spare Change Artist Space Mie has created a new body of work that explores the balance and tension between spending and saving—controlling and letting go. Pastel colored sculptural stacks of oversized round, flat plaster casts inspired by the stacking of coins, will be shown alongside video and audio actual coin stacking. Based on a Danish anecdote “coins are flat so you can stack them (save them) and round so you can roll them (spend them)”, Hørlyck Mogensen uses weights and balances to explore the relationship between saving and spending, having and not-having, value and worthlessness.

Driven by the function of form, each object projects a physical, oversized, brightly colored manifestation of conflicting economic messages. In a city currently battling a major class conflict this tension between saving and spending, giving and taking, having and not-having seems particularly poignant.

 

STACK AND ROLL is a multi-media exhibition featuring drawings, paintings, sculptures and video works.
