Johan Muyle has Left The Building – drawings, photographs & sculptures

“… One day in May, finding myself unexpectedly a guest in an English seaside villa, I allowed myself to be seduced by the idea of slipping some drawings and sculptures into the orderly chaos of this charmingly nostalgic house. Once my sense of curiosity and readiness to respond to the unforeseen had been aroused, the notions of ‘serendipity’ or ‘happenstance’ have led me to freely explore and take advantage of the unexpected, to think outside of the box, in search of a new way of experiencing things that question the status of the work of art…”. Extract of a conversation between Johan Muyle and Christine Gist, July 2014
