BIGGER THAN THE REAL THING: Gallery Marsden Woo, London.
25 March - 01 May 2010:

A two years discussion between artists Emma Woffenden and Christoph Zellweger led to the exhibition ‘Bigger than the Real Thing’ at the contemporary objects gallery Marsden Woo in London. The exhibition focused on issues of identity and the body as a place for timeless neurosis. While Woffendens’ figurative work was placed as autonomous object ‘eating fruit’ in the centre of the space, most objects Zellweger showed ‘From the Incredibles Series’ and ‘Incredibles’ were wall-mounted, referring to the domestic (coat hangers), suggesting usability and function, balancing between artwork and fictional product. A piece with detachable elements, allowing interaction with visitors, addressed the fetishisation of choice as a way to construct identity.
