#two – not the frames, but the things
The immediate impact that the material presence of artworks causes leads to the following question: How does the materiality of a concrete art object impact the viewer, and how does it relate to the viewer and the art-frame? To take the material dimension that all peoples and things share seriously can lead to a perception that merges the viewer and the object. Can this merging impact be understood as a property of the material dimension of the artobject, a property that cannot be entirely explained by the contextualising art-frame?
The simple opposition not the frames, but the things is a provocative trigger for a complex variety of responses. You are warmly invited to explore the contributions!
