Accidental Assisted Relational Readymade #03

A step away from the previous found images of culinary readymades, assisted, or otherwise. On to a more spatial type of work.

You’d almost think that one of the parking garage attendants, where this piece was found, were fans of Cady Noland.

Once again, heads up folks.

A must see, if I do say myself.

Even better, you get to see a brand new work by a certain temporary person, commissioned by the H+F Collection.

El proyecto que presenta Otto Berchem consiste en un programa cromático en el que el artista asigna un color a las letras del alfabeto basándose, en primera instancia, en el código metafísico creado por el poeta uruguayo Jorge Adoum y la condición médica de la sinestesia en las que algunas personas ven colores en vez de letras o ven colores cuando oyen música. Partiendo de estos código Otto crea su propio alfabeto y dibuja piezas textos en los cuales pide perdón explorando el concepto de la culpa y el fracaso y las poéticas que giran a su alrededor.

Blue Monday

For his exhibition Blue Monday, Otto Berchem presents a project that is inspired by the metaphysical code created by the Uruguayan poet Jorge Adoum and medical condition of Synesthesia, a condition where people see colors when they hear music, or see letters. Based on these codes, Berchem created his own alphabet of designated colors, which are presented through a series of drawings, photos, and paintings of texts, where the artist explores the concept of guilt, failure and the poetic.
