Notes for exhibition 8 September - 13 October
The show's physical structure is based on Josef Albers' Structural Constellation #23 (see image) Support > The intermediary between the sense of space and structure, and the spectator who receives the idea. (physical towards structural) Structure of object/work/show - A structure that may be developed in space and time, while form is apprehended as those elements enter into action.
/The object of which this is the first sentence doesn't exist yet. / At the moment the voice starts to speak a creative subject is established. / The object exists of: what it is created of, that what has created it, and how it has been created. Its unity and consistency are established by the fact that the object contains its own life: The body of the object exists from its point of origin to the moment it stops to exist. / While the vision on the object and the spectator's proximity to the object increase, the spectator's perception and sense of the object change. / The object is dematerialized to such an extent that it becomes an active zone.
/The (absent) protagonist as double agency - the development of (the story/plot of) the text / as living (in) object - reflective abstraction. The subject's relation to the in-forming of matter as a process of time continues until the object is dissolved into an execution of the relations of its separate elements. "In this way my body, while itself the product of an idea, would doubtless also serve as the best cloak with which to hide the idea." (Sun and Steel, Yukio Mishima) "Without that house there is no novel. Without that novel this is just my simple apartment." (Period, Dennis Cooper) "Now I shall stop writing in order to stop concentrate, serenely, on finding the way to stop these motors. Then the breach will open again, as if by magic, and I shall be outside." (The Invention of Morel, Adolfo Bioy Casares)
