Bethan Huws: Forest

Bethan Huws: Forest
Library Shelf Location 18.HUWS
Publication Date 2015

At the heart of this publication is the artistʼs piece entitled Forestfrom 2008/09. The work consists of 88 bottle racks, of the kind that were once a common sight in many a French household.

From within this dense ‘forestʼ of (once) everyday objects glows a bottle rack fashioned from neon tubes.

As a piece of sculpture, Forest is at once alluring and enchanted; it pervades the exhibition space while simultaneously remaining a mystery.

In selecting the bottle rack as the starting point for her installation, Huws makes direct reference to one of the great revolutionaries of 20th-century art – Marcel Duchamp.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Bethan Huws: Forest at Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, 3 October 2015 – 17 January 2016.
