Appreciation towards FAHR 021.3 Dalila Gonçalves for providing the following description:


Iron staples of different sizes and orientations are inserted into the space between the 4 silos. As an allusion to the support elements used in construction for the preservation of facades and buildings, these small metal beams grab the different cylinders making them a sole element.

With this same intent, restaurateurs clamp daily utensils like plates, jugs, glasses, platters. In this case, the gesture of preservation is at the service of history, the past is grasped, while the silos lose their original function.

▼装置近景外观局部,铁钉和筒仓呈现出支撑结构和艺术作品本身之间的脆弱的平衡,partial close exterior view of the installation, iron staples and silos present the tenuous border of support elements and the artistic object


If we see this gesture in the light of our action, the Silos become the Object and the staples the support. We can imagine ourselves looking at the back of the four white porcelain vases stapled together while inside the action continues.

This intervention does not improve the building functionally, but it gives the Silos a new meaning, emphasizing the form, the construction itself. It is on this tenuous border of what is support and what is the artistic object that this project presents itself.
