mixed exhibiton site 2021
construction fence ∙ polyester fabric ∙ steel chains, plating & mesh tape
foamboard ∙ rubber ∙ aluminium ∙ paper ∙ magnets
The mixed exhibition site consisted of many former works across different media, being presented back to back in a coherent manner. On one end of the set, two construction fences strung with black polyester fabric were arranged in a V-shape, while the horizontal steel rods of the fence were spared. In the set-up, these acted as a support beams for chain suspended laser cut steel platings, which themselves carried various drawings and prints. On the other end, the installation augmenting reality was arranged in a similar V-shape, with a TV being framed by the two halves of the crate.
In the center of the site, there stood a custom built table, made of welded steel plating and reinforcing iron. The table acted as display for the center-piece of the exhibition, a miniature model of the installation the mechanical sarcophagus in a scale of 1:18. The model itself was built out of the same materials used for the original life sized object. Furthermore the mechanical sarcophagus model was surrounded by foamcore and plastic models of the construction fence and the augmenting reality crate, also in the scale of 1:18. Initially the life-sized mechanical sarcophagus was planned to be presented, but due to problems concering the size, it had to be presented differently. In the end, the problem was solved by creating said model, which showed the site how it would have looked like, with the life-size sarcophagus installed.
The exhibition was rounded off by an SCA computer terminal, showing the online portfolio which you are currently reading this on.
