Other Criteria present new work by Johannes Albers

Published by the artist, this glass suitcase entitled, ‘Other’ is now on display at Other Criteria in Hinde Street until 5th March 2014 alongside a small exhibition of the artists books and limited editions.

Albers says, ‘Every time a suitcase comes up in a story something will happen. The planning stage is completely over and one packs his suitcase and leaves. With a suitcase we cross a borderline. The other side. Hence the title ‘Other’. It can be any border, really. So for me it symbolises new beginnings. A fresh start, a new adventure. In my mind all new beginnings are fragile, as we never quite know what is going to happen. I love the fragility of my suitcase. I placed it in the gallery a bit like unattended luggage, as I wanted to transport some eerie danger element as well. Having lived in London during the IRA bombings an unattended suitcase definitely has got something eerie. I like that eerieness, too. And I think all beginnings are fragile and dangerous as well. Other connotations are plentiful. The money suitcase in a game show for example and sometimes I think it gives you a look into something that’s normally hidden. A bit like an ultrasound image of ones dark inner body.The super main thing is that life is a journey.’
