Wilder, Ken (2004) Projective Space. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
Projective Space was a solo exhibition at the Galerie Sebastianskapelle, Ulm (2004)
The exhibition comprised three works exploring a central concern of my work, the notion of a ‘threshold’ or ‘screen’ between different levels of reality: the space of representation and the ‘real’ architectural space in which the viewer stands. Two types of spectatorship are juxtaposed, a direct physical response to ‘real’ objects within a gallery space, and the imaginative engagement implied by the ‘absent’ space of representation.
'Plenum #2' (2003) overlays a filmic reality onto the space of the gallery, a 15th Century chapel. A metal table frames the projection of an empty niche, into which a figure periodically emerges. The material presence of the slab-like table contrasts with the ephemeral projection, which fades and returns as the light changes.
'Milky Voids'(2003) is a b&w DVD film and photographic series documenting a site-specific installation at Botallack mine, Cornwall. Here the ‘screens’ are trays filled with milk, suspended within depressions in the floor of a ruined structure, which read as both representational voids, echoing the apertures of the wall openings, and tactile surfaces which ripple in the wind.
'San Lorenzo #1'(1998) was designed for Michelangelo’s Laurentian Library. Neither architectural model nor sculpture, Michael Archer notes of the San Lorenzo series that ‘palpably present, they intimate the absent architecture that occasioned them’.
'Milky Voids' is published as a bi-lingual publication by Galerie Sebastianskapelle, Ulm.
