Michael Savona | May 1, 2011 - 3:46pm open objects a very strong volume gallery exhibit. a great collection of pieces that work totemically on their own plus compositionally/ graphically in the same room (or printed on the same fold-out). objects that are indeed 'open' in function but also 'open' to the way planes defy default or how lines stray from straight. wonderfully weighted pieces and love the exploration of common material and the casually stoic manner the pieces rested, shook (when jonathan pushed the shelf), or leaned in the exhibit. as much as i liked the boundary around each, i wonder possibly less about the size of gallery and more if some of the pieces drifted towards each other or drifted, as their form and materiality did, towards alternate ways of display. can objects be more 'open' with a hint of suggestion or does one simply need quiet space to interpret objects more openly? muecke's pieces do need room to appreciate the hidden qualities of each, but i'm curious what would happen if these same objects were allowed to confront each other in more (deliberately) messy proximity.
