In a Constant State of Flux
TRUCK Contemporary Art - +1 Window Space
February 6th- March 31st 2018
In the +15 window space of TRUCK contemporary art gallery, there is what at first glance appears to be an unfinished ‘art’ exhibition, where objects will be left behind scattered on the floor and left on the wall. However, what will be on display is a highly deliberate installation filled with replicated objects carved in stone, mimicking so closely the ‘real’ objects that the viewer may not even look twice as they pass the window front.
Objects of Replication:
Orange 6 ft. extension cord
White 12’ Power Bar with 12’ cord
4 grey screws (approx. length 1’) & 2 grey screws in the wall
Black measuring tape with yellow tape ribbon
Standard yellow pencil with pink eraser tip
Standard yellow masking tape roll
The following replicated objects will be placed in the window space, appearing to be left unintentionally. During the duration of the 2 month exhibition replicated objects will to be on rotation, from moving to different sides of the space, to changing the configuration of the extension cord, to switching the placement of the nail in the wall or the addition of a new replicated object. The site will appear to be in a constant state of flux to those that pass by, giving an impression of soon completion. However, it will never be fully completed in the traditional sense of what the viewer will expect from an ‘art’ exhibition. The replicated objects will continue to appear to be left behind, in a state of perpetual incompletion, even the subtle changes in the space may not be recognizable to the viewer but what will ultimately remain during the exhibition in the +15 Window space is a scene usually left unseen and objects often ignored now put on display.
