Thomas Moor | Affiliate + Perform

November, 2014

 

 

 

Through a diversity of mediums—video works and performance, appropriated objects and photography— Swiss artist Thomas Moor presents viewers with quizzical images that mull over contemporary culture’s self-imposed systems of commerce.

He is particularly interested in how issues concerning the ongoing institutionalization of art production and practice relate to questions of art and valuation. Reflections of how art is being presented flow into his work as a formal and aesthetic vocabulary, challenging viewers to discover profound meaning in that which is easily and often overlooked: simple reflections, the floor beneath our feet, wall paint, or disposable, commonplace receipts.

 

Moor’s carefully staged artworks relate to the exhibition space as discursive space for presenting and mediating contemporary art; leading the viewer to the one or other aha-moment. By melting together the properties of art and its presentation, Moor creates his own soap opera- like narrative of the art world.
