Colliu “Dear My Plinth”
This event has ended.
Plinths are the theme of this exhibition because the showcased artist Colliu has a keen interest in sculpture plinths. What is significant here is that the plinths are a platform for Colliu’s fantasy world. Much like the Japanese tokonoma, the top of the plinth is an absolute space detached from the real world. However, unlike the tokonoma, which can accommodate sculptures and other objects, Colliu’s plinths seem far too independent and assertive for the placing of any physical sculpture. They seem more suitable for non-physical sculpture – “imagination,” if you like – or physical sculpture with as little suggestion of its physical qualities as possible.
