Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts
proposition, bronze plaque
In Linden’s symmetrically landscaped garden, the trees and other elements form a vocabulary that is employed in a succinct preamble to the building. Like a tightly worded sentence, the composition is rigid. However, the careful rearrangement of these components can achieve humour, reflexivity and punctuation.
In an action that ends almost where it began, I propose to reposition the two Norfolk Island pines that flank the gallery entrance. Without addition or subtraction, the left replaces the right, right replaces left. The old switcheroo: A simple turn of phrase enacted in a logistical feat.
