DESCRIPTION

The central mystery of art and politics is; not the frame but the image, not the context but the object, not sovereignty but government, not the gallery but its artists, not God but his angels, not the temple but the people, not the king but his minister, not the law but the police — or rather the creating machine this symbioses form and propel.

Situation as Object (framed) catches up on the potentially trivial and known in rendering of our iconographical culture, where the context seams to have occupied the "communicating place" in both image and action. Saturating this hyper contextualised situation leads us to refocus on the individuality and specificity of the exhibit.
“To think of context as simple executive lingual power is a mistake and one of the most consequential errors ever made in the history of Western culture.”
