The installation Deconstructionsite is inspired by the aesthetic of construction work, the settings within construction sites and the accidental arrangement in urban city structures. It pays attention to and reflects the aesthetic of still in process or unfinished (open) structures and the potential they behold.
It looks at the beauty of run down structures and non intentional arrangements of things with the charm of dilettante constructions. Where either a lack of knowledge, material, or time made the constructor to improvise.
Therefore the aesthetic of construction, deconstruction and the and the question if it is possible to recreate the arrangement of the coincidental is present in in work.
The work beholds elements of abandoned construction sights. Experienced in countries and cities which have been hit by the recession, where - because of the lack of money - unfinished and inoperative construction sites are appearing and shaping the city landscape. There is a certain melancholy to these sites, which elements of the installation behold.
The work is paying attention to this beauty within the accidental arrangement of a working or building process through abstracting these elements and putting them in a setting where, rather than hiding, the beauty can be appreciated.
The installation itself was planed and constructed in connection of the space and was build within 9 days on site, therefore the environment and shape of the building had an influence on the appearance of the installation.
The site-specification not only lays within the influence of the site itself but reaches out to the outside of the building which is surrounded by construction sites and building in process. Bringing these elements into the exhibition setting is melting the two sites and aesthetics together and reacting onto current circumstances.
Allowing the audience to engage with the work on these different levels.
Influenced by the aesthetic understanding of constructivist and minimalist compositions the visual reflection of the elements are constructed in a non literal, minimal manner.
