Will Corvin, a sculptor from New York, was invited to Hungary by Puccs (a micro gallery, which works as a project room for artists). Basicly the artist comes, creates his work here, opens the exhibition, which stays for a short period, so visitors can see it only through the show-window.
In this case Will entered the tiny space and decided to make an exhibition about the room itself. Will, who actually studied architecture, is inspired by cave paintings which are the first decorations of living areas and also may have been a way of communication with others, we could call them the first interactive artworks.
Will’s idea is to show the spirits inhabit the room and interact with US, the visitors. His sculptures are plaster contact copies of parts of the room. And as a house is built from several materials, and being used by us day by day – the objects follow this very simple logic.
AND IT WORKS! My favourite object is the one where the floor meets the wall – wood and plaster, painted blue, so you can see all the scratches and damage age has left on it. Every object is a creature from the room, who lived there for a long time- we just didn’t see them till NOW!
So if you are in Budapest in March, visit Puccs, peek through the window to check out Will’s spirits!
