No Lemon No Melon brings together eight international artists whose work uses mirroring and layering to reveal structures and patterns present in the surrounding world. Through diverse practices of photography, sculpture and video, the artists approach physical and psychological interactions with commonplace materials and natural phenomena by applying transformative processes of layering, reflection, distortion and repetition.

Mark Dorf’s prints and sculptures from the Transposition series address the human impulse to categorize and compartmentalize material existence in terms of oppositions: landscape and city; digital and physical; chaos and harmony. ‘Natural’ elements are supported by leaning architectural forms (a physical layering of plywood and planes of glass that relates to the layers in digital image-manipulation), placed in dialogue with the surrounding room and their further-reaching urban context.

Other artists in the show, such as Derrick Velasquez and Karilee Fuglem, create works that respond to the effects of light, air and gravity, to attempts at mimicking or altering the natural world and patterns of behavior. Scarlett Hooft Graafland’s photographs emphasize the surreal oddities of the natural landscape by juxtaposing them with everyday objects and materials.

Reflecting the palindromic title, the works in No Lemon No Melon address the unstable and subjective activity of identifying and manipulating meaning and order within our everyday lives.
