Between sculpture and photography – between the physical and the transient – Jakob Hunosøe’s works unfold. In his pictures, the everyday world of objects is put together in unusual constellations. In one of the photographs, a vacuum jug is balancing on the reversed shade of a floor lamp; here, the two objects go surprisingly well together. At the very moment that the balancing act succeeds, a small tableau occurs, a tableau harmonized in terms of colour and form; a possibility that can only be realized in one single moment and is maintained in the photograph as a permanent state.  

By manipulating everyday objects, Hunosøe stages a series of special sculptural moments to be immortalized by the camera. A red tomato shines like a coloured light bulb from a plug outlet, the glass part of a coffee maker swells up in soft bulges, a pile of beer glass balances, supporting a banister. The innate sculptural potential of rather common objects such as chairs, lamps, radiators, kitchen utensils, bathroom equipment, rackets and tools are released in the photograph.
