Something Specific About Everything By Samuel Henne
German minimalist sculptor Samuel Henne makes small pieces out of everyday objects and then photographs them on nice, colored backgrounds. This latest group of work is called ‘Something Specific About Everything’. One aspect I find interesting about Samuel’s work is that he transforms his own sculpture by photographing it and thereby creating something completely different from its original state. In the process, he levels the playing field between sculpture and painting.
“‘Something specific about everything’ focuses on various aspects of value and revaluation of materials and objects within the arts practice and the cultural hierarchy. Issues such as Duchamp’s invention of Readymades and transformational processes fuse together with the artistic mediums.” —Samuel Henne
