After last year's successful showing at Huisrechts Project Space in Amsterdam, Full Circle has arrived in London at Studio 1.1, where a number of new works will be shown. The result of a three-year collaboration between Eduardo Padilha and Michael Schwab it takes the form of a systematic multimedia installation with the artists' separate works overlapping and intersecting both visually and conceptually. On the walls, floor and ceiling are mounted drawings, paintings, photography, textile objects and sculpture, featuring abstract patterns from the world outside, making them the raw materials with which to reshape an understanding of that world.
Surrounded by these works, reminders of the accidental fabric of our eclectic urban environment, cognitively we can utilise these interrelating motifs to see beyond the gallery walls, finding ourselves back where we started: a metaphoric as well as literal full circle.
A catalogue with essays by Kiki Mazzucchelli and Jonathan Miles will be available at the gallery.
"For instance if it was possible to imagine a kinetic or floating form
of grammar such that full stops, question marks, colons, semi-colons
and commas constantly appeared to be on the move, then we might
have the means of seeing ways in which fragments and the totality
function. A higher unity of art is gestured within this, but likewise
the threat of entropy appears as an equally likely outcome."
