Spatial Composition 13
(2021)

Materials: Mild steel, fabric, paint.
Dimensions: Variable.

Spatial Composition 13 is a sculpture that also functions as museum seating and lounging, and a position for an audience to look from. The work reflects on the opposition between work and free time, from the particular point of view of the museum as an institution of leisure that performs the notion of time freed from work, while displaying the work of cultural workers. Using the formal language of playground structures and (beach) loungers, Spatial Composition 13 addresses how seating has through time shaped the encounter with art and culture, and in that way the nature of spending time in an art museum.

Spatial Composition 13 was executed by Tom Keynes, Scott Boden, Slav Niedbalski, Phil Brown, Harry Christofy and Anton Krivosejenko.
