Jurgen Ots: The stolen eye and the schlaftabletten.

Jurgen Ots
Jurgen Ots

Jurgen Ots' work, lingering on the border between sculpture, installation and printing, is generated under the Alchemist motto "Solve et Coagula", dissolve and coagulate, break down and reassemble. Ots scours the flea market with religious devotion and is guided by a visual and tangible intuition for the materials sold there every day. He collects items compulsively, but is particularly interested in printed matter and its various manifestations. These articles are later transformed with extreme precision in his studio: old materials are brought to life in a radically new (sculptural) form. The stolen eye and the schlaftabletten is an installation about copyright and meditation. Keywords are: coincidence, gambling, metaformalism and ready-made.
