made in ruins

FRAGMENTS of ruined architecture and construction sites simultaneously, the delicately collapsing and elaborately erected ‘Made in Ruins’  stands as if caught in time. As both staircase and superstructure, ruin and construction site, the work exists in a state of spatial and temporal suspension.

The misfit will not be pinned down. The oversized dimensions and shifting scales of the staircase fragment refuse an easy and predictable relationship with your legs. Beneath the works’ surfaces lie architectural worlds, suggesting an ambiguity of scale and a vulnerable relationship between the work’s outer surfaces and the fragile inner constructions that support them.
