O + R ...In a Constant State of Becoming...

3DIMENSIONAL FRONT. exhibition structure installation > New York. U.S.A > 2012, Competition

Team: Rafael Ortiz Martinez de Carnero + Yu Yuekan

Being IN-BETWEEN means to DISSOLVE the boundaries BETWEEN INSIDE and OUTSIDE, BETWEEN PUBLIC and PRIVATE, BETWEEN OPEN and CLOSE. Means to create and SPACE that is at the same time CONTINUOUS and FLEXIBLE, like a NATURAL FRACTURE.

The installation is conceived as an attractor but establishing a relationship with the actual building in terms of formal logic and composition. During the morning and the afternoon is opaque and intimate turning into a translucent and exterior space at the evening and night.

The main material for the development of the installation structure is an ALUMINUM STRUCTURE completely INDEPENDENT of the actual building structure and modulated as the actual gallery structure. Establishing a dialog between the installation facade and the actual facade of the building.

A secondary structure of steel cable connects all the sections being the support of the SILK PAPER and LATEX COMPOSITE facade, that creates the different effects of opacity and translucency. Finally the flooring is composed by a WOOD PANELING with BLUE VELVET carpet finishing like the curtains.

The exhibition structure is conceived as a FLEXIBLE EXHIBITION SPACE capable to assume different possibilities of USE and DISPLAYS.

On the other hand the continuous nature of the space allows the display of different kinds of art works and pieces as: traditional art works and photography (2D elements), sculptures or physical models (3D elements), video and sound installations or interactive installations (4D elements). The development of performances and body-art works is also possible in some spaces of the installation.

The installation works as a PROSTHESIS of the actual building amplifying its possibilities of use and display, increasing its relationship with the actual surroundings being a connected entity but at the same time AUTONOMOUS. Creating the IN-BETWEEN as a NATURAL FRACTURE in the SPACE.
