Making sense / from condition ( s )

This work is an unfinished catalogue of artistic vocabulary and encounters. Over a longer period of time, I realised different works that seamed to have a similar intent. Through a process of synthesis of those works I came up with a suitable form to continue this practise, an unfinishable catalogue. The work became an attempt to transpose a state (of being) into a practise and a structure, challenging the object of work, the significance of content and the limitations of rationalization and radical abstraction.

The presented version of this work consists of the structure of the catalogue and a series of annexes produced in collaboration with other practices during the course of this exhibition.

To device a project or to project, the hope would be to accomplish a variation. Trough a constructed process I aspire to avoid forced repetition by fear.

Condition (s) refers to a given state, the condition you find yourself in, or given circumstances, these are the condition that surround us.
