Distance

Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection, South Africa
Two person exhibition
17 September - 11 October 2014

At its simplest, distance marks the length of space between two points. It speaks of time and place and the intervals between. Look a little deeper and it separates further; becomes the condition of being far off. It turns to detachment, and enters into the realm of objectivity and scientific observation – a chosen breadth to measure and record; a point of reference; a wetted width. How long? An engrossing task at hand needs and necessitates its surroundings. To measure is to ascribe value; it is an activity that fills gaps. It is an intervention and an act of determination; a way to quantify, to provide significance to the smallest of acts. It’s in the details.
