Average Spatial Compositions
Materials: mild steel, plywood, upholstery, fabric, paint, print on blueback paper.
The installation charts the continued pursuit for the mysterious furniture-like object that appears in the only surviving photograph of Wladyslaw Strzeminski’s Neoplastic Room in Museum Sztuki, Lódz, Poland, from 1948. A sequence of objects and constructions establish possible relations to a missing original. Each one is the result of a ways to study, or approach something, a body of knowledge: the study of its context –in baubaubau – the casting of its presence –in Spatial Composition 11 (to John Tilbury)– the configuration of it position – in Neoplastic (to David Bussel)– the survey of its form through a series of reconstructions in its possible variations – in Spatial Composition 3 to 10 –and finally merging these studies and constructions into a possible average –in Average Spatial Composition 1 & 2.
