“0.001 Percent Volume” grew out of a curated exhibition by Dave Dyment that aimed to look at Minimalism and its relationship to contemporary art practice. Three artists were invited to respond to three different spaces within the gallery. “Glow Space” follows a similar tactic to Yves Klein’s “The Void”: the gallery visitors extend the exhibition space by inadvertently carrying the work away with them. A green phosphorescent pigment covers the floor of the empty, dark gallery. The powder itself is the same kind used in commercial “Exit” signs, adding a layer of punning to the work. In 1961 George Brecht created his “Word Event” with the simple instruction of “Exit”. The title would imply that the work is linguistically based, but its actual function is the turning of an everyday event (responding to an exit sign, or even just exiting) into a performance. The work concretises such an act – to activate the work, the viewer must leave (with) it. The constant flux of the installation – from luminous to dull, from contained to dispersed, from full to empty, from existing to vanishing – reflects my continuing practice of site-specificity and temporality. Lucy Lippard’s book, “Six Years: the Dematerialization of the Art Object”, has been a significant text in my research. The “event” and the aesthetic of the unseen artwork is something that has consistently appeared in my own practice. With “Glow Space” I aim to question the relationship between the permanence of art in relation to its value. Previous exhibitors at Mercer Union have included: Jeremy Deller, Candice Breitz, Mark Leckey, and John Wood and Paul Harrison.
