The painting is folded out from the wall; the wall is folded out into the space. The conception of another space inside the space, which is a part of the art but also a part of the house, a part of the street, a part of life. The potential space, which is adumbrated in the shifting between light and dark in the painting’s and the wall’s surfaces and the time that it takes the senses and the body to understand.
The space that is folded around both viewer and work, in a game of possibilities that is not redeemed until the viewer steps into the space. The work becomes gestated upon the viewer’s entry and the potential is designated within the contours of a game, where the reciprocal work-, viewer- and artist- relationships manifest themselves as tangible interchanges, transpiring right on the spot.
