Objects Space and Gravity

Showroom Gallery, Bethnal Green, 1984 with Steve Naylor.


A random but dynamic configuration of welded steel bars delineating the geometry of a room is interrupted by a series of encounters with neglected domestic objects. They are preventing the steel structure from touching the floor, walls and ceiling. An old rolled up newspaper is pressed hard against the floor by the weight of steel; the pages of an open book are torn; an old sack barrow is precariously held in balance on one of its wheels by the end of a steel bar; while above a television threatens to fall from the ceiling.
