The recreation of Miles of String serves as a brief and straightforward re-enactment. It stands as a revision of the Surrealist methodologies implied by Marcel Duchamp curatorial context; which emerged by Duchamp’s string based earlier work, in relation to spatial drawing and relativity.
The contemporary viewer will be given the opportunity to experience the paradoxical concept of Duchamp’s installation in a reconstructed environment. The string is abstracted of its function, and is carefully disrupting the architectural space. It breaks the boundaries of traditional exhibition design by embodying the diversity and complexity of the surrealist ideals in relation to the object's’ materiality.
The space will be reinvented through the miles of string, spun around the site, fabricating an immense web that will obstruct the viewing of the works that hang on the wall.
