The New York-based Norwegian artist is drawn to big subjects – violence, sexuality, destruction, aging, self-expression. His exhibitions are dense installations packed with paintings, sculptures, readymades, photographs, and contributions from friends working with art, design, or literature. Jennifer Krasinski speaks to him about the visual dimension of writing, the death drive in homosexuality, and the irrelevance of cultural relevance.

At what point does critique become collusion? Does the visualization of a network, a corporate ideology, or an advertising slogan assimilate the viewer into its logic? Critical and complicit by turns, Simon Denny works with academics, corporate entities, and re-found institutions, as well as with artists then and now. His installations archive, subsume and re-visualize their structures and methodologies. Pablo Larios explores how the Berlin-based, New Zealand-born artist reformulates questions of form and representation in his material excavations of current paranoia and progress.
