WORK

HOLLOWED STATEMENT


Each work is made of a stack of eight planks, with cut-out painted edges.


1. The work is the carved out 'object' as such – the stack.


2. The work is the path through the stack, from the top plank A – to the bottom plank B.

    This can also be reversed from B to A. Or be spread out.


3. The work is the process of the path A-B.


4. The work is the mental redoing of the path by the person looking at it.


As a trans-formation, the Hollowed works are not settled into one single set form. Form exists through different modes, equivalent and simultaneous: the static 'object', its spread out, the path, the laying out process itself and its mental redoing.

All these modes constitute the form of the work.

I made a Demo film presenting this for each Hollowed work.


The Hollowed works (until now) are: Hollowed, Hollowed Corners, Hollowed Dig, Hollowed Pits, Hollowed Corners 4-in-1, Hollowed Corners 5-in-1, Hollowed Sides, Hollowed-In.
