Installation photos from the exhibition Concatenation. Signature, Seriality, Painting at Blain|Southern, London, on view through October 5, 2012. The show contains works by Matias Faldbakken, Josh Smith, Reena Spaulings, and Fredrik Værslev.
Curator Peter J. Amdam writes that "the exhibition raises questions over how we might consider painting as an entity in its own right. It presents a mutated, abstract vision of painting which is open-ended, non-subjective and radically immanent – a non-summative seriality which circumvents representation and the idea of painting, to perform something which touches the 'Real'. Indeed, the 'Real' could quite simply be a number, one that cannot be reduced to a concept but is foreclosed to thought, yet infinitely effable."
