Jan Vorisek – Collapse Poem

Kunsthaus Glarus

March 15 – August 23, 2020

PR: Collapse Poem forms two interrelated spatial settings. Whether the collapse is still imminent or has already occurred is unclear. Two material mechanisms—collapsing in on and reconstituting themselves, reified in rotating apparatuses and layered building blocks—form the basis of the exhibition’s various structures. Occupying the Seitenlichtsaal at Kunsthaus Glarus is an inflatable fabric-labyrinth: a space-consuming, two-dimensional shell that is filled with air during opening hours. Stretching out over the upper floor is a not-yet-finished or already ruin-esque structure. Here a fragmentary architecture constructed with manual effort; there a technological apparatus keeping the spatial structure in motion and thus in shape. Created for specific exhibition settings, Jan Vorisek’s (b. 1987 in Basel, lives and works in Zurich) unstable spatial installations are subject to a theatrical temporality. His atmospheric assemblages of used, found, and industrial materials as well as sound-generating devices, reflect on the circulation of recycled and, here, borrowed materials and sound. Accompanying the exhibition there will be released the artist’s book Image Distortion Continuum by Jan Vorisek.
