statement

The act of making contact is the act of connecting and when multiple contacts are made and connections maintained, spaces of possibility are created.

We occupy spaces; we make spaces; but we most often take space and spaces for granted — this work encourages us to be in contact with a previously unseen space — as if the energy of a parallel universe has made contact, if only momentarily, with our visible realm.

The work sets up a push-pull between the contained spaces and unseen worlds of the building — fine pink threads pull towards the unseen, while stainless steel cabling act to hold the work within the gallery space, an attempt to hold that which is ephemeral in our realm.

This work engages the walls, floor and ceiling of the interior space bringing them into contact with each other.

The cross bars appear as if the walls themselves have grown and spanned the space; 197 pink nylon threads travelling from the wall around the cross bars and back to the wall.

Projecting Forward exhibition date were: 21 October — 13 November 2011
