In his work Marcel Frey (born in 1980) places focus on items of everyday use as well as on “design” objects. The things found by him already possess a form before they become part of his works. By drawing on and reacting to found items Frey examines the question of methods of artistic production and decision making. He alters the items by repurposing, painting over, replicating or creating casts of them. In his exhibitions he composes ensembles or interiors that explore the interaction of the objects as a single unit and that illustrate the artistic potential of the items found in our surroundings.
