Urs Fischer, You, (2007)
Here, Fischer dug a crater in the gallery, removing its concrete level. The architecture of the gallery is altered by cutting, disruption, and destructive transformations. “You” simultaneously attacks and fetishizes the attributes of galleries, the qualities that the critic Brian O’Doherty has described as “something of the sacredness of churches, the austerity of courtrooms, the mysteriousness of research laboratories, something that, together with stylish designs, makes them unique cultic places of the aesthetic”
The violence of Urs Fischer against the architecture destined to the sacral rite of art recalls the lifelong work of our beloved Chris Burden. Reference

OBJECTS OF EMPATHY / Miya Kondo

“Functioning is not merely the function of things, but also their mystery.”
-Jean Baudrillard

Objects of Empathy propose conceptual and aesthetic forms for everyday rituals with gesture, posture, handling and materiality. Ambiguous forms invite engagement and interaction creating a personal relationship to the object, and thus defining the functionality of the object. These objects with no clearly defined function and with seemingly ambiguous meaning invite personal and subjective interpretation and reflection thereby giving them their symbolic value.
