Air

17 March - 5 April 2017

 

Objects cut through air, thrusting into the void, a parabola carved out from a wall and into space. Air is held within, around an object. The object takes up space to create awareness of it. Without obstacles there is no openness: a sense of space is relative, only perceived in relation to a lack of it. Carefully, shapes are formed from an aggregate of materials of varying density, tone and adhesion, hardening to shape and reflect the air. To contain it, exclude it, place boundaries on it, reconfigure it. And yet air is in them still, these shapes that shape the air. Air moves through invisible gaps and weaknesses, an externalisation of internal processes as our bellows pump in and out in unceasing rhythm.
