Columns

Noah Caspar

The intensive labor required to weave baskets is redirected into the construction of columns whose creation and form expand upon post-minimalist critique. These elongated vessels merge with the pre-existing architecture of a space, allowing for a making and viewing experience that deconstructs the hegemonic power of industrially produced minimalist sculptures during the 1960s. The structures’ insertion into an environment bisects the room and causes occupants to navigate around them, certifying their claim to space. This experience requires the audience to reconsider how these material bodies alter their interaction with a space and other people within it.
