Architecture is supposed to be the location of security and certainty about where you are. It is supposed to protect you from the weather, from darkness, from uncertainty. BLIND LIGHT undermines all of that. You enter this interior space that is the equivalent of being on top of a mountain or at the bottom of the sea. It is very important for me that inside it you find the outside. Also you become the immersed figure in an endless ground, literally the subject of the work.
BLIND LIGHT, THE HAYWARD GALLERY, LONDON, ENGLAND, 2007
17 May - 19 August 2007
Curated by Ralph Rugoff and Jacky Klein, BLIND LIGHTexplored ways in which we orientate ourselves spatially, how we react when disorientated, and how we relate to architecture and the built environment. The exhibition included a series of new installations, alongside a selection of previous work, and extended beyond the gallery walls with EVENT HORIZON, 31 figures placed on rooftops and public walkways in central London.
