A Regular Quadrilateral
Curator: Zaidman Gili
9 Oct — 11 December, 2021
The point of departure for the works is a dinner with phosphorescent yellow. “It’s unhealthy,” says one; “it has turmeric,” says the other. The exhibition “A Regular Quadrilateral” feeds and develops, following the history of art on a surface of white-male American abstract. Layers of materiality are spread out playfully yet gravely exploring the impacts of a habitat.
Four materials make up the exhibition: canvas, soup almonds, bubble wrap, and terrazzo tiles; accompanied by color—distinct or absent, at times fading and changing gradually. The relationships between shapes, textures, and site-specific meanings crystallize, and the local reading ranges from formalism to pop-art, partly ready-made. Replica templates and patterns of action, from which to produce the same thing, again, and then find the flaws, cover and magnify, make it precise, delineate the color, with a thought that follows the stimuli and returns from the senses purified; Consciousness which produces more consciousness.
