The installation is scattered across the gallery floor in an ef- fortless manner. Various materials intermingle and find ways to oppose or complete each other. Sculptures in this case are combinations of colored porcelain, ceramic tiles and ambig- uous wooden tools of the last century which have lost their function. Here every object becomes a new material, which the artist embraces and occasionally juxtaposes with new media. Short sequences of movement of the objects are captured in video work. The artist uses moving image to re- search how to activate the static form of sculpture in search for performativity.
How do these various media relate and transforms into one another; this exhibition strives to create a new place for these drifting objects.
