installation: lines

Cella Galeria, Opava, CZ, April 16th-27th, 2014
within the exhibition LINES, by Jasmin Schaitl and William “Bilwa” Costa

installation:lines is a site-specific and site-relative installation. The artists defined and measured the essential architectural lines in Cella. The lines are represented by black thread, and are then repositioned in the space “three-dimensionally”.
For example measuring the length of an arch and extending it across the room or measuring a doorway and tilting it sideways. The starting point of each line is an actual starting point of the architectural line to which it is referring.

The white lines are both practical and conceptual. They create a passage through the installation and provide new architectural lines as points of reference.
