“To the maggot in the cheese, the cheese is the universe. To the worms in the corpse the corpse is the cosmos”- Brother Theodore
Chemical processes can teach us much about the world we live in, through slow observation and consideration of such processes we can interrogate our own condition and positioning in the world as finite mortal beings. To view the world as a set of material substances undergoing a process of transformation and decline is to view the world in terms of the corporeal. Art in this regard should serve as no exception, and is not exempt from the ebb and flow of such material destruction.
The exhibition “Blue movie” focuses on this transition of material substance towards no particular goal or outcome. The audience is invited to view a short performance in which an Oxidized patina shifts tonally from Black (Iron ore) to Verdigris blue.
