Mads Lynnerup

Published October 28, 2009 by Molly


We’d all agree that art loses something in the translation from real life to web. Paintings never look as good online as they do in real life. Drawings shrink; colors get screwy, there’s no sense of scale and what’s intended to provoke treads softly.

That said, some work translates better than others, and Mads Lynnerup’s videos––while more intense in their intended installation settings–are an experience worth catching online. The Denmark-born artist splits his time between Copenhagen and New York, and has shown work at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, at P.S.1, at the Zacheta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw and in many other places.
