On the occasion of his exhibition at Storefront, Bente Stokke, a Norwegian artist whose material of choice was ash from a combustion plant, wrote: “my motive for working / lies in the uncovering / of a space / which reveals itself / in shifts and layers of reality.” Stokke’s installations emerged from the confrontation of a found space with an idea concealed in the history of that particular place. At Storefront, this approach resulted in The Ship, a dramatic reappraisal of the gallery’s trademark wedge form. Successive layers of ash applied to the gallery’s walls at its tapering west end evoked the interior space of ship’s bow, referencing the ancient craft and forms of Scandinavian wooden shipbuilding.
