About the artist
Between sculpture and photography – between the physical and the transient – Jakob Hunosøe’s works unfold. In his pictures, the everyday world of objects is put together in unusual constellations. In one of the photographs, a vacuum jug balances on the reversed shade of a floor lamp; here, the the strange pair fit well together. At the very moment that the balancing act succeeds, a small tableau occurs, a tableau harmonized in terms of colour and form; a possibility that can only be realized in one single moment and is maintained in the photograph as a permanent state.
By manipulating everyday objects, Hunosøe stages a series of special sculptural moments for immortalization by his camera. A red tomato shines like a coloured light bulb from a plug outlet, the glass part of a coffee maker swells up in soft bulges, a pile of beer glass balances, supporting a banister. The innate sculptural potential of rather common objects such as chairs, lamps, radiators, kitchen utensils, bathroom equipment, rackets and tools are released his photographs.
In his search for the unique, Hunosøe purposely avoids any digital manipulation and uses daylight as his only light source. His photographs simply document what takes place in front of the lens.
