A,H,O,I,!…

Galerija Gregor Podnar, Berlin

April 30, 2011 – June 25, 2011

 

A,H,O,I,!,… presents a series of objects following the rules of Systemic Sculpture, a concept developed by the Croatian architect and artist Vjenčeslav Richter in the early 1960s.

According to Richter, a systemic sculpture is an object assembled from industrially manufactured parallel sliding parts, which can produce an infinite number of forms.

A,H,O,I,!,… is a series of Systemic Sculptures made from styrofoam and a structural plywood grid. Styrofoam parts can be exchanged and re-positioned resulting in a fluid or non-fixed form, limited only by the shape of the support structure.

Tobias Putrih Studio & Workshop

We develop materially ephemeral settings and objects designed to engage utopian ideas in art, architecture and design by incorporating everyday materials and forms of play and participation. From make-shift architectural modifications of public and semi-public spaces—cinemas, a library, galleries—to constructing temporary environments and objects, our works are products of precisely specified processes while also responding to their sites. Many of our spaces and objects are activated—meant to be moved and inhabited, privileging play and bodily engagement over vision. Artworks become proposals, maquettes, or models—exploratory assertions of radical possibilities.
