||Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.
Sculpture as an opening between environment and inner state of being.
Where space becomes the material to cultivate a place and anti-place, man, object and environment can become a logical whole again.
With an interest in the relationships between body, poetics of space and gravity, I worked with the strutural aspect of the exhibition space to negotiate the site and the experience of going up to the main galleries.
The stairs as a threshold that challenged both axis, the horizontal and vertical plane.
Stretching across four levels of stairs, each level held a unique arrangment of iron beams. Like a musical score, the intervention was a composition of rhythm and mass—introducing an awareness of one's body's weight in relation to the experience of coping with displacement.
