James Hoff, Drop Shadow, Kunsthall Oslo,
24th August- 29th September 2013
Drop Shadow is an exhibition of new work by artists James Hoff and Anders Smebye. Hoff will cut open the walls of the gallery in a physical rendering of the processes of the Robert Morris Worm, the first destructive internet virus to propagate ‘in the wild’. Smebye will present an alphabet of two metre-tall runic figures cut from patinated, corroded metal and felted wool. The title of the show is a signwriter’s term for the painted shadow behind a letter, and Hoff and Smebye both, in different ways, work with text as physical material, language as image.
