Railing Study / Graphite on Paper

When discussions with the curators of the show ‘I Am Another World’ first began, our conversations revolved around creating a pseudonymic space, and how, if at all, that could be materialized. From these conversations, I began by designing railing structures that translated the amount of wall space that was perceived as unusable for the exhibition; each sculpture’s length being the sum of the window voids in the rooms they occupied. _ __Pulled into the body of the space, the structures became devices for slowing and editing the gaze, each performance of them creating the potential for renaming based on their use. Once built, Leaners became not only an attempt to organize views of the exhibition and reading materials but also choreograph the act of viewing itself.
