A pudding that endless screw agglomerates, curated by Eva Wilson at Polish Institute Berlin, 5th February – 2nd April 2016.
The sculptures employ brass and concrete sourced from manufacturers of construction components, relying on the aesthetic seductiveness of the raw material while creating seemingly utilitarian objects. The works’ titles articulate corporeal imperatives that relate to intervals of arrested productivity. The apparent offering to accommodate “downtime” on the Modernist or Brutalist bling furniture doesn’t, however, facilitate relaxation, but would leave the potential sitter in a state of discomfort and restlessness. The material of this public furniture shares with Modernist aesthetics the ideal of resilience towards the grime of the real and the social. Both offer a merely anonymous and fleeting accommodation of human hosts and a desire to remain pristine.
Rest, Sit and Lay, 2016, brass, concrete, rope.
