Henrik Plenge Jakobsen. J'accuse
Texts by Karl Holmqvist, Henrik Plenge Jakobsen, Lars Bang Larsen & Marianne Torp
Henrik Plenge Jakobsen's work can be described as a configuration of visual elements in spatial arrangements, often involving an additional element of action or performance. Many of his works combine sculptural elements and objects in a plastic display positioned between sculpture and installation. Differing from the theatrical andy systemic 'total' form of classic installation art, Plenge Jakobsen's installation stratagems are based on a more unrestrained, flexible arrangement in which the room is merely an arbitrary architectural frame rather than a meaningful collaborator. That is, more Broodthaers than Kabakov.
