Jan Christensen

Process Room, 01.11.05- 13.011.05

Jan Christensen, Process Room, IMMA, 2005

 Jan Christensen’s work consists mostly of big installations for exhibitions and site-specific projects. Most of his work is wall drawing and painting. An installation is carefully planned out and sketched with a computer before it is meticulously carried out on location. Christensen uses a wide scope of visual references in his work from architectural plans to iconic imagery from pop culture.

“For my project in the process room I will be installing a wall painting. The work is an experiment for a large commission that I have proposed for the entrance hall of a hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden. I would like to make a work that could have the lasting effect of a decorative backdrop for the hotel, rather than producing a complicated figurative composition with a complex narrative and literal references. Of course, the colourful pattern of stripes might produce associations ranging from Bridget Riley (with a psychedelic twist,) and Jim Lambie, to Paul Smith’s patterns for clothes and Iittala ceramics.
I have produced a range of work dealing with issues such as appropriation, site-specificity and architecture, questioning notions of authenticity and discussing the objecthood of art. Parallel to the critical practice I have been experimenting with painting and formal issues, often involving large-scale installation work for the respective exhibition spaces.”
Jan Christensen, Oct 2005
