The Koppel Project is pleased to present Carousel, a group exhibition that turns around the possibilities found within the field of abstraction.
A carousel represents a quick succession of objects or bodies in motion. This offers an overview of the sensory spin that abstraction might aim to provoke through colour, form and materiality. Either through painting, or sculptural installation, Carousel grasps this concept metaphorically by confronting multiple notions, such as the use of language, geometric or gestural systems and the examination of the material of painting itself.
The intention is to simulate the intensity and absorption of a play space. Such a panorama highlights the differences and similarities between each investigation. The heterogeneous nature of the works aims to provoke an optical and tactile dizziness, thus allowing the works to become distorted or placed into focus, to probe at the myriad possibilities of material manipulation.
