Suspended, 2015

Three rocks crossed through

the gallery floor

 

[ this work was part of

the exhibition

Mapping Continents,

Lamb Projects,

London]

Suspended constituiu-se por meio do deslocamento de três rochas utilizadas para construção de calçadas e meios-fios em Londres para dentro do espaço expositivo de uma galeria. Após esta primeira ação de transposição das rochas, de um espaço público para o interior da galeria, as rochas atravessaram o piso do segundo andar do edifício, e, consequentemente o teto do primeiro andar do local. Assim, as rochas estavam simultaneamente enfincadas no piso de uma sala, e suspensas no teto de outra, conectando-as materialmente por meio de uma intervenção arquitetônica. A posição das rochas no espaço expositivo lhes dava peso, autonomia e destaque, diferentemente do contexto urbano, evidenciando suas respectivas formas e constituições geológicas, e, consequentemente, contrapondo o tempo mundano da cidade ao tempo dilatado da geologia. ________________________________________________________________________________ Suspended is constituted by the displacement of three rocks used to build driveways and curbs London into the exhibition space of a gallery. After this first action for implementation of the rocks, of a public space into the gallery, the rocks crossed the floor of the second floor of the building, and consequently the roof of the first floor of the site. Thus, the rocks were simultaneously piercing the floor of a room, and the other suspended from the ceiling by connecting the material by means of an architectural intervention. The position of the rocks in the exhibition space gave them weight, autonomy and prominence, unlike the urban context, showing their respective forms and geological constitutions, and consequently contrasting the mundane time the city extended the time Geology.
