Simon Dybbroe Møller’s reflection on Conceptual art’s systematic processes and forms uses apparently rational processes to achieve quietly mystifying results. With his vivid taste for wit and formal exactitude, the artist sets all manner of references, quotations and re-creations in an unfamiliar setting.
Kompendium is an artist book accompanying the Danish artist’s first comprehensive solo exhibition at the Frankfurter Kunstverein and the Kunstverein Hannover. The first part contains texts by nine different authors which illuminate the main ideas of individual groups of work. Each contribution is reproduced as a facsimile from a previous book. The second part documents most of the artist’s works up to now.
