Ole Martin Lund Bø has a distinctive minimal, interdisciplinary approach to
his work. He playfully misuses materials as an entry into a larger paradox.
His materials and subject matter – such as foil, tinted glass and rubber –
are inscribed with meaning, radiating power and desire. They act as
excerpts of architectural structures or forms of social decorum. The works
themselves, however, are extractions rather than abstractions, suggesting
an act or a certain behavior. The formal minimalism engenders the feeling
that the intended subject is somehow missing from the work, existing just
outside the field of the work. The monochrome surfaces are stage sets,
codes and catalysts, producing their own specific rules of engagement.
