Oscar Tuazon at Kunsthalle Bern, February 13 â€“ April 25, 2010
According to the artist it is impossible to make architecture in an exhibition space because all of the problems that architecture needs to solve have already been solved: thereâ€™s already a roof overhead; a heating system; walls and a floor. But what if an artwork creates new problems for the building?
The artist creates sculptures and installations that are characterised by a sense of tension. Comprised of both natural and industrial materials, Tuazonâ€™s structures reference minimalist sensibilities, DIY aesthetics and the formal language of architecture. At the ICA, Tuazon will be making a radical, site-specific intervention in the exhibition spaces. Pushing the physical boundaries of the gallery, the structure will incorporate, penetrate and infiltrate the ICAâ€™s lower gallery and concourse.
