Agnes Scherer’s “Notebook Simulations” Supersize Laptops at Kunstverein Düsseldorf

In her first institutional solo show “The Notebook Simulations,” on view at Kunstverein Düsseldorf, Berlin-based artist Agnes Scherer supersizes the laptop, rendering its mythos in paint (not pixels). Nine monumental laptops evoke “contemporary folklore” with error messages from Microsoft Windows and endlessly multiplying program windows. Recalling “megalithic stone formations and ancient temple sites,” Scherer’s notebooks resemble archaic ruins of an era in the process of drifting away into the past.
