Rachel de Joode The Hole And The Lump February 16 - March 17, 2013
The Hole and the Lump, Rachel de Joode’s first solo exhibition in New York.
“The approach of a sculpture is the possibility for the viewer to turn around it, appreciate the space and volume, from the bottom up or from the left to right, measuring the most appropriate angle.”
In this exhibition, de Joode examines the fundamentals of sculpture: volume, material, texture, and scale, by transforming them through contemporary means of representation. Pushed and pulled terra cotta is photographed, printed on un-stretched canvas, and draped over a model in classical figurative poses. Pedestals are printed, rather than produced as volumetric shapes, and the sculptures that sit on them are no thicker than the wood they are mounted to.
De Joode is interested in the representation of physical objects through photographic documentation, specifically as it relates to our experience of viewing the image as “art documentation” on the Internet. The three dimensional object is rarely the final artwork. Sculptural representation, sculptural materials, and sculptural space are all reconfigured through a two-dimensional lens, and returned back into the three dimensional world.
