“Common Ground”, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, 2008.
A room – a space – two letters are captured by a membrane, an interior space filled and formed from its own limitations. This displacement of material from its outside to its inside, or vica versa, leaves a trace and makes the membrane more and more permeable, and the inside more and more fragmented. CHAIR consists of a series of chairs that emerge from drawing to independent object facing two folded and unfolded letters/correspondence. Yet we must identify – name – not just the appearance, but also the objectlessness of disappearance as pure imagination and sensation. The empty spaces – cut-outs – take up this non-object and become once again sensations towards a new objecthood.
