Spectacle Studio: Words describing corrupted views 2017

“Spectacle Studio: Words describing corrupted views”    
I was a guest artist at MODEM between May 2 -12, 2017 and was provided a spacious studio space at the front of the museum’s glass enclosure, a glass cube, which was called “spectacle studio”. MODEM expressed interest in keeping work(s) produced during the 10 days spent in the studio for their collection, offering to compensate material cost. There was no information available about the collection or the locations of the collections, I felt inspired as it was important to create a work that is unmovable, unsellable, a gift that after its removal terminates, without a need for storage. A gift that was as much given as it was not. Placed on display, the work I did there was a reflection to that physical and cultural space, a representation of the current normalized culture political glass cage situation that artists, thinkers and cultural organizations navigate.

The resulting work functioned as a projection screen made by painting a thin layer of shaving cream on the museum window. A stand-in for a projection screen, as a symbol of lack of transparency and manifestation of an impossible paradox, essentially withholding all the planned projected images. It was understood that the artwork is applied directly onto the window of MODEM and if removed, the artwork will terminate.
