This project came about at the point where sculpture and site-specific installation meet, with non-figurative artworks. we aim to connect the exhibition's particular architecture properties with contextual acts, as an important shift of the project.

About

DECONSTRUCTION is a philosophical movement that was led by Jacques Derrida, this procedure aimed to find new meanings by adding non-linguistical exercises attempting  to reformulate the significant value of language in terms of writing. Nowadays it has been employed as a verb that can be applied, among other uses to criticize inconsistencies within hegemonic systems.

GCP's philosophy allows artists to work actively with space, for this reason, the artworks are executed in situ, consequently, interventions are mediated by the architectural space and the proceeding methods  of each artist.  The artists taking part in this exhibition project -have previously worked  the site-specific installation, some of them perform spatial approaches demeaning the origins of the material employed; others are reflecting about the strength of matter  in terms of fundamental equilibrium, others choose to address inconsistencies of materiality regarding the configuration of sculptural projects. While some of the artists gathered in here prefer to refer to the arbitrariness of the contexts in which usually certain objects are located and how disjunct of its structural systems.

What happens when the artworks in its most radical format of display interact with the local art scene, and what are the attributes of this exhibition? What features does an installation for the public to want to identify with? 

Deconstruction encourages  to rethink, how emotions disappear when inanimate objects invade our creative habits.


The pieces assembled here are transiting the spectrum of three-dimensionality, then this assortment of interventions can be understood as an examination of the sculpture, which in turn involve nontraditional building procedures, hence the techniques and materials used by the artists can raise doubts about the sculptural practice  differing from academic conceptions related to this question.
