tempera, partly removed wall paint
partly removed wall paint
The proportion of both exhibition rooms (formerly divided by the sliding door) is 3 by 4.
My attempt was to translate spatial relation into a temporal one. The work had a form of a trilogy. Colours of rectangles painted in the corners of walls referred to the compass directions. Two Japanese symbolic conventions were combined with my own. After the First Setting was finished, walls were painted white. The Second Setting took place three years later. Some of the coloured rectangles became visible again after the wall paint was partly removed. Several new rectangles were painted. Later they remained covered for the next four years. During the Third Setting some of rectangles, visible in two former exhibitions, appeared for the last time.
