"Constructed space… is more than simply the concrete and material substance of constructed structures, the permanence of elements and the architectonics of urbanistic details. It also exists as the sudden proliferation and the incessant multiplication of special efforts which, along with the consciousness of time and of distances, affect the perception of the environment" (1).
ONE AND ONE AND ONE part 2 is a group exhibition that considers the idea of incompletion through the imagined and real spaces of architecture.
"The force of incompletion allows for different circuits to operate where openendedness, distraction and the peripheral imagination come into play. ‘Margins can touch, overlap and rub up against each other" (2). The incomplete proposes a space that is begun and worked upon while at the same time acting within its own history.
The participating artists explore the transient qualities of spatial occupation through works that expose a process of production that might suggest versions in transition towards further manifestations. The work is released from a point of conclusion, offering a concept of space that is not static.
Taking this sense of fragmentary space and discontinuities as a mode of address, the exhibition evokes the contingent and provisional not so much as unfinished business but as an arena where conversations intersect and are hybridized.
