60 x 55 cm
Marker pen on printed plastic bag, series of 5 unique works, framed
publishers by ICA, London, UK


“Untitled (Plastic Bag / B.F.) 1-5 are a continuation of the artists’ ‘container’ works previously involving wardrobe lockers, VHS cassettes, liquor bottles, newspaper vending machines and empty Marshall cabinets. With these works Faldbakken tries, in various ways, to collapse the difference between sculpture and mould, container and content. These ‘plastic bag drawings’ are an ongoing series which the artist has presented in various forms and configurations, sometimes framed uniformly and precisely, often simply taped to the wall with packing tape. The bags are printed with cropped newspaper images which the artist then further works on with an abbreviated text drawn sketchily with marker pen. In this case the ‘writing’ says B.F.”
