SIGNS AND THE SIGNED BETWEEN REPRESENTATION AND PRESENTATION
INSTALLATION CERAMICS - IDEA COMPLEX
As individuals, we each construct our own separate reality, and inscribe them in layers of referen-
tial systems. We move in a virtual and actual reality simultaneously, and decode related signs and
acts to understand and communicate them. At Marsden Woo Gallery in London I wish to thematize this with installation art that consists of ceramic glazed concrete, conventional concrete,
wood, and drawings.
I wish to unfold installation art based on the architectural use of the sign and the signed, working
with the inside and the outside, with shape and content. As the architect who assembles her building
from pre-made elements, I will utilize repetition with the possibility of variation, combinatorics,
juxtaposition, and orientation to achieve spatial, material cohesion, but also disorder. With
this I want to question space and the relationship between representation and presentation.
Is the installation its own space, reality, or does it refer to that which exists in or outside the
gallery, to something that will be completed in the future, a reference to a virtual world or something
completely different?
