Spell Action #1


performance/ action sculpture/ ephemeral architecture
Sculpture performance 'Spell Action #1' reminds of a tool or game; or a tent, stand, fence or other portable, adaptable construction, It can be mounted into different abstract structural elements to create temporary settings, bringing ephemeral architecture to mind.

Spell Action #1 performance explores, how the sculpture, object and space is not a static/ fixed, but it is in a transit.
Performance suggesting a process, - thinking in forms.
The performative sculpture ‘Spell Action #1’ in my ongoing ‘Spell Action' series (2019-). Each ‘Spell Action’ work relates to, and questions a specific institutional art space, on which it paradoxically also depends itself to be completed. As ‘Spell Action exposes and plays with its own framing, it simultaneously suggests alternative narratives. It aims to fix and unfix temporary spatial boundaries in order to find new ways to negotiate and share the sensation of a space and its power to validate.
Each ‘Spell Action’ sculpture is custom-made for a specific art institute and specific professional performers. The particular measurements and proportions of the chosen spaces and bodies determine the size of the sculptural object and its choreography. .
