Another Documentation (Installation View), 2012

Another Documentation reflects the artists continued interest in investigating space, modernity and the minimal. It includes an assemblage of new works that address and simultaneous challenge strategies of making, displaying, documenting and organizing art and non-art objects at cultural institutions, constructions sites and architectural offices.
Included in this assemblage are object responsive sculptural gestures, photographs, drawings on the wall and on scrolls of paper. Collectively the assemblage engages with and responds to the architecture of the gallery, the growth and urbanization of its surrounding areas.

Another Documentation addresses the process of construction vs. deconstructions, location vs. dislocation, and dialogues between architectural, engineering and artistic drawings. It draws attention to strategies of display and documentation; the beauty inherent in the physical process of making of a work, and its residue when destroyed.
