Barbara Halnan, Michele Elliot, Anne Mosey and Elke
Wohlfahrt create four separate installations in which line is a prominent
element. Line, as the extension of a point may be elaborate or simple, free
floating or defining, straight or curved. The modernist edict of “taking the
line for a walk” has allowed line its own integrity, eventually drawing away
from pencil on paper into space and location. These 4 installations use line as
a means to respond three-dimensionally to the architecture of Articulate
Barbara Halnan stimulates visual excitement through
the interaction of sets of lines between a two-dimensional wall drawing and a
three-dimensional drawing in space.
Michele Elliot creates a wall work, comprised of
mapping pins and meters of thread. She traces the edge between both the
landscape and memory and the past and present.
Anne Mosey’s site specific work uses the available
daylight to create lines of light within the space that move across the space
during the day.
Elke Wohlfahrt uses the line as an expressive
vehicle. Her brightly
coloured timber installations are
linked to painting.

Facebook comment: William Seeto posted an image of my work in process on Facebook and this lead me to think in the following way. I have edited
this further from my face book post in response to some “likes”
Horus: Lost and Found
This is a changing wall situation so is not actually an installed
exhibition. Wiliam Seeto has made a
remarkable photographic image of a very provisional moment within a process of happening ( Sunday 4th March light shadow material
space). So an open-ended installing is happening but with no specific intention
to arrive at a consolidated moment of installation. Articulate has invited me
to work experimentally in the space for two weeks and to think about the
implications and modes of documentation.
My focus orientates within the more than four cardinal
points of 2D, 3D, thought, materiality, action, collaboration and participation,
geometric shapes, embodied line and the contours of vases and remembered terrains. On the basis of my interest in his scans of found objects and our ideas for a collaborative artist book
in progress, I have invited John von Sturmer to participate in this research.
He has created a self-documenting work of text and scans titled Reality
Check. And on Sunday he
installed a found tubular assemblage as a splayed tripod: a spirited threshold piece.
For the duration
of this situation at Articulate I have named my exploratory
process which retrieves and discards, convenes and disperses transmutes
and distils : Eye of Horus: Lost and Found. Perhaps
this documentation image of a template panorama, created by William Seeto has revealed
a work? What is a work? Is it a
form of stasis of an artist’s intervention that ís called completion? A stoppage that nonetheless
enters a new dynamic of being seen? The space may well be
emptied by the last day.
