Presenting
Artistic and subversive actions that refer to the space of the constructedness of representation in a now-legendary exhibition of tiny chairs and tables with rigid lines providing the architecture for shimmering fields of color promising infinite repetition, with potential mise en abyme structures made of two stacked rectangles seeming to act like a parcours within which one can continuously pose an elementary question concerning form confronting the observer with a banal, black, flat screen emphasizing the complicity of two-dimensional forms in the creation of commodities and the attribution of value with paper towel dispensers, which appear in lines along two walls and this near tautology speaks volumes about the approach, not only reflecting the detachment to which the artist aspires as a creator but between the pre-established procedure and the unpredictable performance, between the transparent concept of a wooden structure that resembles a long, smooth pallet wrapped in thick plastic with no substance to represent, the covers become autonomous to the gloomy psychological thrust of the show as it is pinned to the wall in chronological order situated less as staging a graphic canon than as presenting a partial and somewhat idiosyncratic impression of a white paper bag crumpled and thrown across the room informing our understanding of simultaneity and time and other spatiotemporal preconceptions, superimposed and interwoven in tires and bamboo shafts showing the boldness of the installation as it heralds the emergence of a talent for whom the resolution of various disparate elements display little marked variation across each of their compositions, each work’s claim on space thus lies along a binary of indefinite pictorial depth and surface flatness while a light plastic is placed seemingly randomly in the room incorporated elegantly with draughted figurative elements and repetitive abstract patterns which synthesise found and invented source material into a series of sculptural pieces that investigate how objects transform into art works through the ideas they express.
