The duck press, in French cuisine, is a specially designed device, in which pressure is applied on the duck’s carcass to extract blood and other juices. In ohne Titel (Entenpresse), we see the reflection of an audience, stretching out its hands to receive the share it deserves. It is a ritual of extraction, not unlike an alchemical process of transmutation. For last drop Magdalena Los has produced a new series of paintings that continues her ongoing inquiry into the relation between art and labor. The works situate the place of art in a world of transactions, and respond to their own situation with mixed emotions. You are looking at the different moods of a lemon, and they are de-pressing indeed. (Franca Zitta & Mari van Stokkum)
