In Tender Raids With-Madsen squeezes aluminium foil into elongated structures, these structures use juxtaposition or collision combined with a mixture pasted together from clay, computer screen, tape, projector light, and architectural elements, to create shapes, which she photographs and juxtaposes, with nonprecious materials such as trash, paper, and Styrofoam.
These styrofoam and aluminum foil shapes are again captured in a single shot photography and printed on mirror foil as. ... a mash up/overlay of representations until they reach a level of mere effect in a sense of delirious, disturbing and pleasureable visuality.
As one moves around the prints, its mirror on mirror finish offers a variety of reflections, depending on the lightsource. The once two dimensional image immediately becomes sculptural, encourages interactions and creates face to face encounters. An effect that catapult the viewer far beyond their original dimension because of their simultaneous connection and disconnection with reality, instigating a moment of reflection in the viewer – a sense of the uncanny.
These works investigate the complex relationship between the art object and its viewer, providing a cross-section of the diversity of With-Madsens’s practice and highlighting the artist’s unique interaction with her audience through her projects.
Please note: These prints are printed on metal foil. This material 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.
