    Cementa and Toyota are two sculpted sisters located in the industrial landscape of the Malmö harbor. They reside at the waters edge on the last strip of public land amidst a large depot of imported cars and a colossal cement silo. These two site-specific sculptures, one cast in concrete— the other moulded in HDPE plastic from the area, contemplate on their situation, vaguely aware of the synthetic, artificial nature of themselves and their surroundings.
     
    In the exhibition at ACUD gallery a film about these two sister sculptures will be shown alongside the works themselves, Drifter, Biofoul and Residuals / Age of Shiny.
     
    Drifter – which also serves as a bench for watching the film – is made of concrete and a car shock absorber, Residuals / Age of Shiny are the residues – or mutant sisters – of the creation process of Cementa and Toyota and Biofoul consists of a stack of vegetable crates filled with apples for the audience. What unifies all these sculptures is that their material was found on site – an artificial stretch of land built out of rubble and contaminated waste in Malmö harbor.
     
    The two sisters remind us of carved figureheads used as guardian spirits at the prow of old sailing ship, but their positioning on the waterfront seemingly also mocks the romanticism of the little mermaid – the famous tourist attraction positioned on the other side of the Oresund in Copenhagen.
     
    Toyota and Cementa are the last in a line of Matti Sumaris humoristic-melancholic quest to come to terms with a mankind which is constantly alienating itself more and more from its surroundings and leaving behind nothing but waste.
     
    In past exhibitions such as(The Logic of) Instruments For Cycles Through A Hunter-Gatherer-Gardener Matti Sumari applied a techno-archaic logic to build out of discarded bicycles found in Umea-river a mobile quick composter to compost organic garbage and grow on it flax for oil and mattresses, he reuses now with Cementa and Toyota the debris of the industrial landscape to imagine a futuristic trash-animism, both times applying premodern mindsets to the man-made and controlled environment of today.

    ABOUT
     
    Daniel Haaksman hat die letzte Dekade damit verbracht, urbane Klänge aus der südlichen Hemisphäre zu erforschen und künstlerisch neu zu interpretieren. Seinen Ruf erarbeitete er sich nicht nur mit seinen DJ-Sets, Produktionen und den Veröffentlichungen seines Plattenlabels Man Recordings, Daniel wurde vor allem für seine Tanzflächen freundlichen Remixe und Bearbeitungen bekannt.
     
    Ein Daniel Haaksman Remix verkörpert musikalisch eine schwer zu definierende Mischung aus brasilianischen Rhythmen und Afro-Grooves, die mit der Bass-Kultur und den Sounds verschiedener Nordhalbkugel-Clubgenres verschmolzen werden.
     
    Die heute veröffentlichte Compilation “Remixes 2008-2017” (Man Recordings) zeigt Daniel Haaksman´s eklektischen, tropischen Club-Sound anhand von elf Remixen für Künstler, wie Schlachthofbronx, Batuk, Felipe Cordeiro, Omulu und Populous. // Daniel HaaksmanMan Recordings
