Brightness Cuts

Installation with overhead projections, wooden furniture and framed, found stitchwork still-life. Dimensions variable, 2016.
Also exhibition at Kunsthalle Waedenswil 4–24 July 2016.

A group of overhead projectors are, as one, projecting a single horizontal
line of light across a entire wall of the space.
This line is at 157cm high (a standard height in museum hanging) cutting the
wall laser-like, right at its hanging mid-line.
The projectors are resting on generic, schematic timber versions of recurring pieces of furnitures from art history: medieval chair, romantic swing, récamier lounger or simple bedside chair à la Van Gogh.
On the wall is a stichtwork still-life. Its lower-half colours are faded and the glue holding the canvas to its board dissolved and untacked.
It is also framed, though the frame is roughly cut in half, framing only the upper half, matching the midline of the actual canvas, as well as the hanging line of the wall highlighted by the projectors.
