November 17 - February 4, 2024
In Attitudes of Humility, Jensen presents a new ensemble of works, conceived for the caged exhibition space at MoHA facilitated by Cage Match Project. The installation strategically combines three sculptural concepts: the “model”, the “index”, and the “found object”, all within the framework of the art-historical Land Art genre. Employing a post-minimalist perspective, Jensen considers how formal repetition can reinforce inherited, restrictive systems of meaning-making and influence. Here, each sculpture presents a version of piping used in commercial infrastructures. The works are staged on raised platforms, a gesture to both the construction of landscape and landscape under construction.
Attitudes of Humility takes its title from a relationship Land artists and their supporters distinguished between the body of the viewer, the object, and the landscape on which these forms are situated. In her work, Jensen posits that such expressions of humility towards the land itself are inherently contaminated by the presence of the art institution.”
