Inside a white box, three differently configured yellow objects are individually
placed. As an immediate consequence, one´s physical experience of the
previously empty space has been dramatically altered. The perception of one´s
movement, of the box´s limits and of the position of the yellow objects is now
inevitably intertwined. Their significance, however, remains unclear. Under
closer inspection, their shape might resemble an abstraction of the classical
architectural elements: an architrave, a fallen column and a plinth, arranged
separately as a puzzle, only to be revealed when mentally placed together,
evoking the experience of a (possible) site specific sculptural piece that engages
with the containing space of a gallery room. Or perhaps, these yellow objects only
hold objectual value as (possible) pieces of furniture, produced to store other
smaller objects both inside and atop of them. In such scenario, their arraignment
might be justifiable simply as a naive attempt to create some kind of spatial
hierarchy in a wall-less apartment, marking and defining different areas
according to a specific domestic use: an entrance hall, a central living room and a
bedroom with a panoramic view. It´s never truly clear which of these possibilities
might be accurate, or, if any actually is.
