Simon Denny’s Mine Opens in Minecraft

Simon Denny’s solo exhibition “Mine” opens at Kunstsammlung NRW, Düsseldorf—and in Minecraft. Playing with the show’s themes of resource extraction and exploitation, the New Zealand artist recreated the entire K21 museum area—at one time the world’s largest coal mine—in the popular sandbox video game. Here, lo-fi representations of works like Denny’s Workers Cage (2019, based on an Amazon patent) reveal the deep interconnections between minerals, labour, and data.
