Aeneas Wilder: Collider
2008.11.18 [tue] – 12.13 [sat] 11:00-19:00(Saturdays 11:00-17:00) Closed on Sundays, Mondays
With careful consideration Aeneas Wilder piles up a large quantities of machined wood according to certain rules and principles, without the use of any fixings or adhesives. Through this process he creates fragile architectural/organic shaped installations; walls, gently waved towers, and a myriad of other open structured volumes.
Through simple materials combined with balance, gravity and friction, each structure and the surrounding space are filled with an intensity, containing silence and the promise of unfolding chaos.
For this exhibition a 5m sphere will be installed that could be said to symbolise the phenomenon of "collision", one of the most important concepts related to his work.
As a part of the exhibition, the working process is opened to the public on November 15th for the first time in Japan.
