The solo show at Galerie Salvador Diaz consisted of three
new installations and a new graphic print series.
A large pneumatic installation, Nube Neumática, filled
up the main exhibition room. A large white inflated "cloud"
made of thin and light nylon fabric was hanging from the gallerys
glass roof structures, letting day light filter trough. Two
fans above the installation was generating air pressure that
kept the balloon in its shape. A timer system cut the fan
off at intervals during which time it loosed some of its volume.This
slow "breathing" was raising and lowering the installation
from the floor. The work was dealing with tension and changing
relationship between container - rectangular solid space -
and content - an elliptical three dimensional shape floating
The entrance space of the gallery was housing a long and
and light structural installation, Slide Pipe, suspended from
the ceiling with thin cables. The "spine" of the
work, a 12 meters long stainless steel tube, was kept linear
with a tension structure created by shrouds and spreaders.
The tube was not quite horizontal, one end of it was some
centimeters lower than the other. The audience was able to
put steel balls roll slowly through the long pipe, which made
the whole structure vibrate and create a special sound. The
simple interactive work dealt with structural logic, resonation
and elapse of time.
The third installation "Eclipse" was dealing with
light and reflections and was built in the upstairs room.
It consisted of a round dvd-projection resembling "Moon"
and a round mirror suspended from the ceiling in front of
the beam. The slowly rotating mirror casted a changing shadow
on the projection and a moving light reflection on the surrounding
walls. In a way the installation created its own simplified
"lunar eclipse" to the room.
A series of 5 silk prints (1,2 x 1,2m) were hanging on the
empty wall of the entrance space. The series was studying
the formation of moiré patterns in straight lines and
