Rethinking The Art Object Through Dispersal Practice

Adhere & Unadhere to Unconsumable Global Luxury Dispersion (2015-ongoing) Walter van Rijn

Unconsumable Global Luxury Dispersion.
UGLyD is a long-term project that comments on the distribution of art and other consumer goods through online as well as gallery based networks. It plays with the flow of things and how our categorisations of humans, objects and other things define access and visibility. UGLyD loves hybridity. It often creates hybrid or symbiotic objects that seek out new ways to disperse. For example, through interaction with a font, a tape, a database, a script.

The latest project, in collaboration with the John Hansard Gallery, uses exhibition history and its artwork titles as the material to work with. It is rematerialised in the form of a database, texts and simulations of viewing art collections and exhibition histories.

Videos created as part of my practice-led visual art research.
The art objects developed through the dispersal practice are projects which are embedded within different situations, often both art galleries and online sites. (To see other works visit http://www.symbiotext.net )
The embedded projects create a space from where over time many objects become materialised, hybridised, re-constituted, mixed, dispersed. The objects tend to be ambiguous because they are not an end product but show the project at a particular time, like a still. Ambiguous because these objects are open for anyone to appropriate and remix, or they are left unfinished and some are tools for others to use. Ambiguous because they circulate between conditions such as digital and physical, or between visible and archived.
Not many hard boundaries then, which aid the circulation of things, a looping of states, and a withdrawal of THE artist and THE art object. What persists is a dispersal practice of projects.
