2 sheets of paper (A4), ink, cardboard folder
certificate of authenticity
(On view is a prototype)
edition of 50 and 5 A.P.
This edition was conceived in relation to Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s installation astrocytes (2021), presented at Jan Mot, Brussels from October 9th to November 27th, 2021.
“A few years ago, I had a vision of a constellation of rings occupying the gallery space in an unusual way, which means making it impossible to walk through the space and look at the exhibition as usual. I imagined the circulation space, the central void becoming the most important aspect, somehow reversing attention to another dimension. […] The words which are part of astrocytes and engraved on the rings are extracted from a kind of « virus diary » which is a series of notes/quotes collected almost every day about our pandemic/syndemic time.”
(Fragment from a conversation between Dominique Gonzalez Foerster and Julia Wielgus, summer 2021)
The work is ideally presented on a wall, with both pages fixed each with 2 slim nails. The order of pages is interchangeable.
