Anders Bergstrom solo exhibition

June 6th, 2018

Dolan/Maxwell and C R Ettinger are pleased to present a collaborative exhibition of recent works by Anders Bergstrom. Works in the exhibition are selections from an ongoing series of meticulously made etchings printed and folded by hand to imitate the common brown paper bag. Pop Art and Photo­realism are reference points but ultimately his methods and the act of making are what motivates Bergstrom.

“Anders Bergstrom makes work about process in the guise of product. The result is a series of printed objects that pay homage to the individual labor of mass production by undertaking the rigorous process of reproduction by hand. The origin of the series is a suite of nine prints based on the bottoms of paper bags distributed by Duro, the largest manufacturer of brown paper lunch bags. Duro prints the name of the employee who produced each bag and the date of its manufacture on its underside like an artist’s signature, ironically authenticating an object destined to become crumpled detritus or litter in a street gutter. In Suite of 9 Prints, 2011 Bergstrom isolates the signature on each bag, enlarges it and reproduces it as an art object.”   Eleree Edros, catalog essay 2016

“Bergstrom makes approximations of reality with his constructed bags.  These are not appropriation, rather a more painstaking production using printmaking to create something intended as useful, sturdy and cheap.  Each bag has it’s own personality; a lean, a crease, a tattered saw tooth edge. What plays out there is text, color and form. Once assembled, the sculpture shows almost no marks of creation.  They are full of nothing.  It would be easy to think of them as readymades, when the reality is that the process of approximation gives them more of a kinship with Vija Celmins than Marcel Duchamp.”
