Folding (in the) Past

    Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

    Abstract

    The fold has been theorised by French post-structuralist Gilles Deleuze as that which makes simple materials transform into materials of expression. This transformation gives material the potential to express conditions and relations, including that of time past. Works of art which investigate the problem of time past can in certain cases explore this by means of the fold, understood as philosophical-aesthetic concept and formal operation. This exploration includes research into conditions which happened in the past, folding in, capturing by means of provisional enfolding traces of a past condition or event. Folding (in the) Past is a table work piece that contributes to this line of investigation, exploring themes of the past, of tracing, traces, the fold, and enfolding time. It continues a tradition of aesthetic investigation explored across
    the twentieth century by the device of the table work. Anthony Caro’s work in this area and at this scale is of particular relevance. The current work extends that research in a different medium and in explicit reference to the concept of the fold as propounded by Delouse. The work contributes to debates around the relationships between coloured works in two dimensional space and three-dimensional works (sculpture and architecture), adds to critical histories of modernist space and composition at this moment in its trajectory, and makes a modest contribution to scholarship on the potential of the fold for aesthetic practice and thinking today
