before naming 2012

maple wood, pigmented silicon, MDF, alginate, HD screeninstallation view at Essence 2013, Künstlerhaus Wien, AT

The title before naming establishes a relational space where a number of material compositions are arranged. The installation brings together various positions on the stability of form – time here is seen as a non-linear structure constituted of moments of equal legitimacy. A planed beam of Maplewood prolonged by a gray silicon extension: clear lines of a familiar geometry that is deformed by its own weight. The object as a whole gradually begins to lose its form. The transition between different consistencies concurs with a structural break down of function. The extension however remains an attempt, an adumbration.
