2107 / laying bricks

The scenographic proposal for the exhibition Laying Bricks was based on its specific condition – the exhibition was presented under the name of the audio visual production and distribution platform elephy. Yet the works displayed were those of each of the four founding artists themselves. In other words, while the works represented each of the artists as an independent practice, the exhibition as a whole should portray the platform as a shared practice.

Given this condition, the scenography worked around the balance of the individual and the collective. Each of the artists were provided a wall to display their works. The four walls, together with a platform as a defined boundary within the vast gallery space, created an empty space in the centre where collective events could be held. The walls, each their own size and proportion according to the needs of the works, showed a uniform finish from the central space. Yet from the opposite size, where the works were displayed, they showed a different face, finished (or un-finished) each in their own way. All together, they portray a relationship where the individuals co-exiting in the same open space strengthen the identity of the collective.
