Elusive Matter: Glass, Air, and Solidarity in Frantzsen&Mjanger's Work

 

In this essay, Johanna Zanon analyses how the artist duo Frantzsen&Mjanger has explored the multifaceted and ambiguous relationship between glass and air through breath. She looks at the three main series of works they have developed since their debut in 2017, as well as the new productions for their exhibition Shapes of Breath at RAM Galleri in Oslo between November 4 and December 5, 2021.
