Place
May 30-July 6, 1996

Place is inspired and provoked by the visceral architecture of the gallery. Space is not simply a passive stage that accommodates the viewing subject, but rather it is a viewing mechanism that produces the subject. In other words, the room is the protagonist.

The sculpture and its placement could be viewed as a symptom or condition that privileges the bodily and psychological experience of space. Boundaries between object and site dissolve in the slippage between subject and object, suggesting that the gaze is an activity that the room itself is engaged in. The interior is the voyeur, when subject and object change places. Context is ritualized and sculpture is the consequence.
