Visit our sculptural supermarket Off License – Cash Only at Møntergade 3C, Copenhagen this week Wed-Friday 12-6pm. All art works by Danish art and design duo Frederik Nystrup Larsen & Oliver Sundqvist.
Inspired by Claes Oldenburg’s The Store in New York from 1961 and the off-license liquor stores in London, where the two artists have been living for the past six months, the project springs from a critical approach to overconsumption, bad manufacturing, as well as an irrational fear of online shopping; the feeling of never being completely sure whether what you see is what you get.
With Off License – Cash Only Nystrup-Larsen & Sundqvist essentially seek to challenge the viewer to be more critical of what they see and buy, while investigating the fine line between art and commerce and the way we attribute value to objects of art by experimenting with the relationship between fiction and fact. Off License – Cash Only is the first edition, additional pop-up stores will follow in other cities around the world.
