About the Timeslut series
In Pernille With Madsens original work Timeslut (2020), raster dot compositions, are painted freehand with a blue or black Penol 750 marker on paper transforming objects into matrices of floating dots, that mimics photomechanical processes calling into question issues of reliability of the image. the original work was presented at the show Excess and Melancholy at Gallery Susanne Ottesen in 2020
With this offset print edition titled If I back it up - TimeSlut 1 made in a edition of 100 we want to take this work a step further and explore the aesthetic, and not merely reproductive, potential of offset printing, not considering printing as a simple means of technical reproduction on paper, but rather exploiting that something extra offered by the printing process.
Pernille With Madsen’s artistic practise, includes a broad range of architectural interventions, industrial materials, video, light and performance. Sometimes veiled and sometimes confrontational, the messages conveyed in her work raise serious questions about aesthetic, political, and social convention.
In the “Timeslot“ series, Pernille tries to evoke and control not just the actual focus of the receiver, but also the way of perceiving – the mood – which is not directed towards concrete objects as “feelings for”, but has to do with a general sensibility, and a way of opening towards the world.
The Penol 750 dots, vibrating as if in constant motion, is a perfect model for Pernille’s oscillating vision of reality and refusal to finalise image or idea.
Please note: These offset prints are printed on a 100 gr. Munken Print White paper. This very lightweight, frail paper can have som residue, traces from the production and handling. These traces is considered as an integral part of the final work by the artist.
