WHAT IS THE VALUE OF OBJECTS IN A CONTEXT  ?



WARP, K1, Sint Niklaas.


DE (ON)EINDIGHEID VAN HET (ON)GECONTROLEERDE

 




“ what is the value of objects in a context” 


When one enters a space, any space, there is a staged setting displayed in the way the maker of the space imagined. The way humans will experience the objects & the space, is a pre-determined scenario.


The space is stopped in time and picked apart by it’s maker and has taken the essential things with it, to then be installed again in a new context on a a different location. The space, is an atelier, a working place or laboratorium.


Scenario 1.3


The spatial planning will be experienced here by means of a rack, table, light-box and television.


First there is a film shown. In the film there is a setup of the essential things that are reinstalled by the maker in a different space. The experience of the object & the spatiality becomes different. It is the introduction to a scenario what could be experienced or played in the “now” in the current space.


The shapes / bodies / objects in this space are developed from materials that start from nothing but are developed into something. The idea is that these materials can be used and re-used all the time by which the most essential part of continuity is kept in stance.


The light-box is a start of the work with the title “de (on)eindigheid van het (on)gecontroleerde”. It is the beginning of the idea that an induced state of flux and endlessness in compositional possibilities is made possible. That there is a constant possibility for change. This originated because the maker is inspired by the light-box being a tool for presentation and a tool for drawing.


The rack refers to archiving and saving the different possibilities within objects and materials. It makes it an inexhaustible source of information.

 

The table is a moment of confluence, dining, communicating…


When one has wandered through the space, one shall engage in finding that: The triptych – object, matter, spatial completion – is essential in the creation of new meanings and continuity. Hereby, these elements question the value of object and form.

 All materials have no residual value and come from the idea starting from nothing and going to something in the same way the technique of weaving: you have one thread and you create a surface.

AS I WAS WALKING THROUGH CITIES





As I was walking through cities, I was making pictures of the architecture.

Noticing the buildings that I photographed had the same structure most of the time. And my photos focus on the lines in the buildings (horizontal-vertical).The pictures I would later interpreted, and translate into drawings, My drawings are the beginning for different suggestions in my pieces. A continuation for my compositions on which I base the selection of materials and qualities I want to use. Their feel, atmosphere can be found in my drawings. To put this in an actual piece, I began folding my fabric. Folds that I change during my process.The compositions will evolve naturally over time, as I process and develop my designs further. Tending to make the same evolutions in compositions, as the evolution in the structures I photographed.

The research led to black on black - white on white - black on white - white on black compositions. The dark colors with different greyscales,Related to the use of colors, the quality of the textile is important, Using less color makes it more interesting to play and combine different materials and to get gradients and an (smooth) evolution with (small) accents.


Key words in this work:

BINDINGS/ COMPOSITIONS OF THE DRAWINGS, DIFFERENT MATERIALS WHO ARE RELATED TO MY DRAWINGS THESE DRAWINGS WHO ARE AGAIN RELATED TO MY PICTURES. /THE COMPOSITION OF THE FOLDS_
