This book is no longer available in book-stores.
The book launch took place at Polyforum Siqueiros, a cultural and political facility located in in Mexico City.
ThoughtsThe exhibition "Who Runs The Space Now?" explores the progression from tension to risk, starting from the tipping point to the inevitable stage of falling. Five international artists intervene with the polarities of maintaining tension and then losing it.
Tension is susceptible. Constantly searching for its balance while bound to the laws of physics, tension holds its own dynamic existence in space. Similar to any force it can change the form, direction, or speed of an object and can be defined as a vector in space. In social sciences, tension specifically refers to stress or situations in which opposing goals, ideas, or influences can cause problems. As a result, the release of energy can be simultaneously disturbing and comforting, depending on the viewer’s perception.
The installations in the exhibition are a test of endurance and open the door to the uncontrollable risk of failure, and the potential of falling through space or losing its tension.
InformationThe book was officially released on June 8, 2012 at the Polyforum Siqueiros, Mexico City.
