Silas Inoue’s practice is characterized by an idiosyncratic approach to nature and natural sciences, and imagery he describes as Quasi-Asian in reference to his mixed Danish and Japanese heritage. He makes use of classic as well as less conventional materials, including sugar, cooking oil, mold, and other living organisms. Combining intuitive methods with more analytic observations of the world, his work wavers between fantasy and fact, synthetic and organic, and growth and collapse.⠀
Part of his praxis consists of site-specific interventions in alternative locations and venues, such as Skovsnogen Deep Forest Artland, Formic.dk, New Scenario’s Body Holes for the 9th Berlin Biennale, as well as basements flooded by rusty water, and other self-established temporary exhibition spaces. ⠀
Welcome to 'The Farm'. Where a small flock of sheep in the neighbouring field could chance upon rows of windmills across the plains of this extraordinarily flat and gusty part of the world as the only hint to any kind of agriculture.
“The sheep belong to a farmer nearby,” explained B&O’s product communicator, Iza, as she led us through the building. “We actually pay them a bit to graze here. People like to look at them out the window and see how they’re doing.”
Known simply as 'The Farm', the modern boxy structure overlooks a pasture where sheep roam between a horseshoe configuration of buildings that share the same clean lines and simple design that one finds in B&O products.
