Objects exist as mirrors reflecting and absorbing simultaneously. It is within this tenet, distilled from Henri Lefebvre’s, The Production of Space, eating stone attempts to reconcile object and site as recursive necessity; a symbiosis of accumulated aggregate. Negotiating site through particular methodologies, material phenomenology, and narrative structures; the objects in the exhibition become selected actors; stark solitary bodies, meticulously constructed, and resolved within their own open specificity.
The collaborative video work/with audio composed by Paul Gunsberg, is a sound arrangement derived from surface recordings of the cell space; modified, stretched, and inverted. The surfaces becoming amplified internalizations of histories embedded in the walls, benches, and floor of the space.
It is within and without, attuned and atoned, eating stone.
