Description

Personal creates an otherwise impossible connection between the gallery’s interior and exterior. With the help of a laser beam, contours of a shadow that would otherwise be created by sunbeams coming through the windows, is maintained on a thermosensitive surface placed on the wall. A shadow that can never really occur on this wall because the gallery is placed on the ground floor facing a narrow street. Thus an artificial model of a process that would otherwise exist under other circumstances comes into being. The site-specific installation accentuates one of the most common parts of the course of a day, the sun crossing the sky and its reflections from a variety of barriers. This Díaz’ installation is a follow-up of his preceding projects (Adhesion) exploring the relationship between natural and man-made environment.
