The Auckland-born, Berlin-based artist is something of an art-world darling at present. His tricky, timely work has been exhibited at Moma's PS1 space in New York and was a talking point at the 2015 56th Venice Biennale, and has been the subject of major profiles in the New York Times, The Independent and The Guardian.
Walking in to the 2015 Serpentine Sackler exhibition, it's not hard to see why. Denny's work couldn't be more current. A series of installations, housed in a a kind of superstructure, blink and flash with text, graphics and recognisable brand logos. These high-tech sculptures "revolve around contemporary management practices an the historical hacker management organisational forms that inspired them", apparently.
Let's be honest, this über-arty, zeitgeist-y exhibition is no easy affair. Is it tech? Is it journalism? Is it art? It's certainly perspicacious, and probably fascinating if that you're into this kind of thing. And, with Wikileaks, NSA surveillance, Anonymous and the Data Protection Act at the forefront of everyone's mind and paper, Denny's got la mode on his side.
