Galleri Tom Christoffersen presents the solo exhibition KRYPTO PLASTIK by Mogens Møller.
The sculptures weigh ½ tonne, ancient texts, autobiographical photography and many other things.

Today everything is exposed; how we consume, our genes, our economical situation and preferably the result should be suitable for a quick power-point presentation.

Mogens Møller insists on a different approach. Instead of turning subjects inside out the artist preserves the secrecy of places and creates spaces, which are difficult to access.
It may sound cryptic but the act of coding a form or a relation and opening up for multiple ways of breaking the code is important for the exhibition.

The new works by Mogens Møller are unlike. Ambiguous minimalist objects, which create optical illusions. Various stories of creation, which point at diverse origins. Small elements from Roman sculptures displaced in time, scale and contexts so they at the exhibition weigh 400 kg. and looses their original function.

The exhibition KRYPTO PLASTIK is a spacious world of plasticity with respect for the time and experience of the viewer. It challenges habitual ways of thinking and asks us to relate to the works by inventing new ways of decoding the juxtapositions.

Mogens Møller (1934) is former professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. In collaboration with Hein Hensen and Stig Brøgger he has conducted important public commissions as Stjerner (Stars), Aalborg University 1980, Fredens Port (Peace Portal), Cph.1982.

The artists has been granted the Eckersberg Medaljen (1988), Thorvaldsen Medaljen (1994) and in 1994 Mogens Møller was given The Danish Arts Foundation’s lifelong honoraria.
