    CCA Wattis Institute : Henrik Olesen - The Walk

    Comment by AB: "Henrik Olesen adds dirt to the neatness and sexlessness of conceptual art. He is drawn to rough and uneven surfaces, and he works towards an art that recognizes desire, profanity, obscenity, perversion, and jouissance as productive and emancipatory forces. For this exhibition, Olesen creates a site-specific installation of new work along with a selection of existing works from the past five years." OK. Fair enough.
