Invisible Statement #1(Yvonne Rainer)
2019 / Gloss paint on matt wall / Variable Dimensions
Invisible Statement #1 (Yvonne Rainer) is a wall text painted in the same colour than the background wall. The text is painted in gloss over matte so it can only be partially perceived thanks to the reflection of light. The piece forces the viewer to bodily engage in order to be able to read the full statement. The piece focus our attention on the ways objects and architectural elements organize our bodies in the space. This firststatement —“Move or be moved by some thing rather than oneself”— is a quote by the American choreographer Yvonne Rainer. She used this quote to express her interest in finding movements that where the expression of a thing rather than the human will.
