Marcel Frey does well to transform everyday objects into art. Not just as a gesture that serves to demonstrate how even the slightest motion can throw our perception out of kilter. He also reactivates the historical partnership between culture and material production in our consciousness. In the tradition of bridging the gap between utilitarian and artistic object, Frey’s works play their game. They force us to ponder where exactly the transformative forces are at work. In the way we handle the object? In how we view it? Or simply in the mannerism of the table legs? What is display? What is image?
