I tend to notice ceilings in art spaces and how they influence the reception of work within. I like work that asks me to think about this physically in the present as well as metaphorically about present notions of a word "ceiling" as well as the more reflective bits about what it represents in the past, brick and mortar venues, sites of human congregation and revelry. Somehow these connect to Pierre Hugyhe's "L'Expedition cintillante, Act 2 (light show), 2002" as a miniature performative space of light and sound where and when the audience is a strange participant in terms of scale and temporal displacement. The lights are on, but nobody's home. Not only does this take a literal dimension in terms of stage lighting without performers (wherein the assumption is that the viewer is said audience) but also metaphorically as it refers to spaces once congested with human interaction, marketplaces (galleries) for example. So, the work reflects its site of reception.
