‘Between Halfway’ comprises six works that have either been assembled in situ, built or re-designed. I think of each work as a series of predetermined and ideological components that, while relating to a bigger whole, take on their own premise and can be problematised through acts of indifference, detachment, adherence and refusal.
Taking cues from Duchamp’s ‘3 Standard Stoppages’ (1913-14), my interests lie in the material spaces that arise when taking chance with the limitations imposed by these components. From here, the work sets out to seek an agency whereby my own personal biases give way to an alternative logic, grasped at through a newly developed subjectivity. Paradoxically, this agency has led me to consider detachment as a significant form of methodology, as developed in Giorgio Agamben’s thinking on blindness and Mladen Stilinovic’s spirit of laziness.
