Hrvoje Spudić & Sven Sorić
A gilded square meter of a gable wall, precisely lit by an artificial light source. The change of light and darkness. The liminal condition — a drawing is withheld from its supposed surface.
The superposition of gold and light is the superposition of the symbolic and the physical. From
the surface we substract drawing as a material medium and we inscribe an immaterial medium
— light. In a way, we are correcting a mistake in logic — on a dematerialised sufrace, one should not intervene materialistically. We use light to test the surface, its apparent three-dimensionality, flatness, the emanation of light from the surface.
A 16 mm projector and its mechanical and optical characteristics would be used to test a flickr (light — the absence of light). Without the presence of gilding on the wall, we do not know and cannot anticipate how the projections will appear. The process is inseparable from the work itself.
