Oneness of Concrete
The Oneness of Concrete, a familiar, everyday material that was once independent of any conceptualization or perception by the mind presented through collectively experimenting with metal and wood. Focusing the audience’s attention on different aspects or qualities of a given material, these works hint at the complexity of the most simple, everyday objects. The geometric forms within the Oneness of Concrete suggests a dialogue with contemporaneous Western minimalist sculpture by artists including Alexander Calder, Anthony Caro and Carl Andre. This connection is, however, presented in alliance with my own personal perception. The assemblages do not simply look temporary; once photographed, they were disassembled and today these photographs are the only record of their existence. Through methodology, it investigates the concrete block and its properties by understanding its capabilities and limitations.
