Anne Wilson Topologies
As part of a seminar this week entitled "Neo-conceptual strategies in material-based art" we had a presentation by Chicago-based artist & professor Anne Wilson, whose project "Topologies" was of particular interest. It is a series of "table top" installations made from found textiles on large white boards, arranged in a way that evokes models or representations of fictive urban spaces. The work becomes a kind of spatialized narrative investigation of the conditions of architectural space. Each version of the work becomes a reconfiguration of the same set of ideas and principles, responding to the particular space in which the work is installed and to the impulses and preferences of the collaborators involved in realizing it.
