Glass Cat 2 comprises sculptural works that explore the potency of objects and the threshold between real and imaginary.
‘…modest and even abject objects are hieroglyphs in whose dark prism social relations lay congealed and in fragments… In this perspective, a thing is never just an object, but a fossil in which a constellation of forces are petrified. Things are never just inert objects, passive items or lifeless shucks, but consist of tensions, forces, hidden powers, all being constantly exchanged.’
Hito Steyerl, from ‘The Language of Things’, 2006.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with specially commissioned text by Peter Suchin.
