An artist residency as part of the exhibition Being
Andrew Kovacs, Architectural Cliff. 2013.
Week 11 / Jan 7 – 11, 2014
About the project
The ambition for the Storefront Residency is to install a ‘Architectural Cliff’ in the narrowest part of the gallery. ‘Architectural Cliff’ is a vertical architectural model that will exploit part to part relationships, formal contiguities, the everyday, and the architectural. Oscillating between a collection and a hoard, ‘Architectural Cliff’ is composed of everyday objects that have architectural qualities as well as architectural models. This collision and compaction of objects forms a 3-dimensional spatial coalition that is a proposal for a space of architectural mountaineering. Each piece of ‘Architectural Cliff’ will be documented and cataloged by their inherent architectural qualities such as form, color, size, mass, etc., before being placed into the organized spatial hoard. This grotesque vertical beast will grow and evolve over the 5 day residency period until it fully fills and occupies the narrowest space at Storefront.
