Wisløff, Isak


I see sculptures as objects. Things formed to serve a practical function is often understood as commodities and a part of the daily life-consumer culture. Through my practice I research the commodification of art and how it relates to production, consumption and circulation. Visual arts and design have different starting points and intentions, but meet in a market that make profit from abstract concepts such as creativity and originality. Domesticated products is the starting point for my sculptures. My experience and background as a furniture designer affect my artistic research and practice. By using methods from the practice of design I try to implement forms that indicate a function in my sculptures. Through this I am trying to explore the relationship between an object and a sculpture independent from context, but through the thing in itself. By working logical and rational with irrational combinations of different forms and materials a hybrid between a product and a sculpture appears.
