‘Reading the textile city  dust – findings’  by Katharina Blanke / 2012
(photo collage, textile print, tulle, thread, plastic rods, ball chain)
Den Straßenstaub lesend werden urbane, internationale Fundstücke in Fragmenten als Stadtrock erfasst. Ergebnis ist ein Metropolenmosaik, ein konzentrierter Innenstadtring, einer Meduse gleichend in Fragmentfalten aufgerafft.

Ein urbanes Umfeld hinterlässt seine Spuren. Der Stadtrock bietet eine Projektionsfläche für diese individuell gesammelte, urbane Momentaufnahme.
Textiles are driven by as a dust catcher across the cities. Reading the city dust, urban, international findings are embraced in fragments as a city skirt. The result is a metropolis mosaic, a concentrated innercity ring. The city skirt offers a projection surface for this individually collected, urban snapshot.

‘Chromacorpus’ by Rodney LaTourelle, 2012
‘Chromacorpus’ continues LaTourelle’s ongoing research into the relations between colour, space, and experience. He approaches colour as an unpredictable force, rather than as mere signifier in a representational matrix. Colour is a relational medium and as such it surpasses language and acts directly on the bodily unconscious. It is this polychromatic instability that LaTourelle seeks to initiate with his installations that use colour to structure space.

Accordingly, Chromacorpus is a three dimensional frame for colour interplay, but it also functions as a kind of exploded book, with selected quotations that provide a partial ‘mind map’ to LaTourelle’s work. As a ‘colour-body’, the installation counters the concept of colour as a representational skin, provoking protean connections between colour, space, and language.
