The desire to arrange the world into usable bits of data is at the heart of much of LA-based Erik Frydenborg’s intriguing work. The organic, diagrammatic shapes repeated in Codec 2 (Haploops) resemble a classroom teaching tool, museum display device or science lab model, but without any discernable information or references for the viewer to decipher. Rather than the information itself, Frydenborg hopes to draw our attention to the basic human impulse to classify, arrange, compare and study the world through easily graspable objects and ideas. Erik Frydenborg received his BFA from the Maryland Art Institute and his MFA from the University of Southern California. His work has been reviewed in such publications as Artforum, Artweek and the Los Angeles Times. Frydenborg’s work recently appeared in Bellows and Whispers at Cherry and Martin (Los Angeles); Post-Rose at Galerie Christian Nagel (Berlin); and will be the subject of an upcoming solo exhibition at the Suburban (Chicago) in 2011.
