“Space Within Space”
by Leo Kuelbs
By using existing work, as well as new pieces created specifically for LKC, we consider questions of space as an aspect of art that, while often discussed, are never formally or fully answered. Can art, instead of architecture and design, greatly shape the spaces we spend time in? Dwell in? And how does the work itself color the experience of entering or interacting with such places?
We are creating worlds within worlds.
Besides the use of space, there’
s also the question of narrative. When we remove the narrative content from the confines of the flat wall and make it 3-D, the work becomes more tactile, more dangerous. We can feel it vibrating in our midst. It has invaded our personal zone and we must deal with it. No longer is the work set up for passive, wall-mounted observation; this show instead asks for experiential, living interaction.
