Johannes Vogt Gallery is pleased to present Trouble Every Day, a group exhibition that brings together artists engaging with objects and rituals of daily life. The works oscillate between purely formal investigation of objects and their implied (mis)use, as instruments for leisure or torture.
The title references Claire Denis’s film of the same name, a coldly detached narrative-phobic parable that investigates excessive desire in its physical form. The exhibition follows a similarly loose structure. Each work forges an ambiguous relationship to the body, acting as a banal vessel or as a site for potential danger and transgression.
