OrtaMiklos: Memory Foam

Superhouse and Friedman Benda are pleased to announce a virtual presentation of new work by OrtaMiklos, the design duo of Leo Orta and Victor Miklos Andersen formed in 2015. Memory Foam takes place at www.superhouse.us from August 16 through September 26. The exhibition combines cutting-edge video, animation, and a video game for an innovative, interactive viewer experience, created in collaboration with digital artist Guillaume Roux, musician Antonio Davanzo, and writer Kristian Anoldi. A text by Alice Bucknell accompanies the show.

 

Memory Foam debuts a new series of 14 sculptural chairs rendered in brightly colored hues. One of OrtaMiklos’s most personal and symbolic bodies of work to date, each chair represents a different identity and is in turn named for a family member or friend who influenced their process and production. Conceived and produced when Andersen returned to his childhood home during the pandemic, the curvatures of the forms were informed by the contours of Denmark’s landscape.

 

Through Superhouse’s innovative digital platform, OrtaMiklos continues to explore new ways to create away from existing norms with a video game component of the show that allows a player to take on the persona of one of the chairs. Waking from a coma-like state, the chair begins to explore the post-apocalyptic environment in which it finds itself. Together, chair and player traverse the digital landscape, interacting with the other chairs in the series and understanding their different personalities and the alternate reality.
