Les volumes sourds by Atelier YokYok

Light and textiled volumes appear, stretching from one window to the other. This geometry plays with the rythm of the facades and the architecture that surrounds it. Its ambiguous materiality vibrates with the light and gets glances to rise up.

Slight Agitation by Tobias Putrih

Fondazione Prada, Milano

20 October 2016 – 22 January 2017

Curated by Cédric Libert and Fondazione Prada Thought Council

 

The Cisterna exhibition space took on three different configurations in this project, each engaging with ideas of play, politics and emancipation: a theater for an ongoing brick construction, a tactile ‘blind room’ and a sculpture that turns into a labyrinth.

As a whole, this intervention produces an inhabitable game. In its individual configurations, it evokes the innocence of childhood and the surprise caused by discoveries made through play and autonomous adventures. Through this project, Putrih explicitly echoes many historical precedents in the dialogue between art, architecture and experimental pedagogy, exploring the limits and possibilities of learning through play and extending the physical experience of a large-scale game into the political realm of negotiation and the awareness of collective behaviors. Instead of a one-player game with predefined rules, Putrih proposes an evolutionary self-reflective play set that engages the audience, the curators and the artist himself, implying a collaborative interaction between all subjects involved.

tube installation cologne

Carlswerk 16.09. – 09.10.2016
Most extensive and expressive Tube installation yet was initially designed as a parasite structure, but had to be suspended from truss construction due to the bureaucratic obstacles. The upper part of the structure, tailored from a flat net surface, consists of larger spaces, while the lower part of the installation, made of net hoses, feature narrow tunnels of entrance and exit. Two parts seamlessly merge in a pulsing spiral of the structure.
