Bling blang, ching chang, give me some of that yin yang
The first survey of the (2010–14) work by the young Swiss and Danish duo Yarisal & Kublitz, this monograph gives us a deeper look into their emblematic, enigmatic, imaginative and often humorous work. Sculptures mixing the inorganic with the organic, traditional religious symbols and their New Age counterparts with common everyday references and popular culture blur the line between what is considered holy and what is considered secular. At once commonplace and strange, their sculptures expand our associations by releasing iconography from its common paradigms. Curator/critic Elizabeth Grady writes, “Ultimately, their work as a whole explores the territory of the human condition; from our physical embodiment to our metaphysical state of being.” Essays by Elizabeth Grady, Norwegian filmmaker/photographer Marius Ektvedt and curator/filmmaker Joshua Simon along with preface by Alex Gartenfeld.
