Peter Macapia Allies I $37,500>

Description

What would it mean to fabricate a precise fold? A precise kind of accident? What should that look like? Should it be just an index of the event of its having been dented? Possibly. One can simply create a kind of accident and the result will be what it is. However, if one wanted to create a specific fold, not the image of a fold represented in three dimensions, but create it ex novo, how can that be done? The making of the piece is in its own way a kind of piece, a set of actions that require a certain blindness regarding the results. It is much better this way to make a piece. Peter Macapia is an artist, architect and scholar. He is the founder of labDORA – internationally recognised architectural research & design studio, and Peter Macapia Studio. Both of which he started after he received his Ph.D. from Columbia University where he was awarded the Presidential Fellowships. His various projects, from installations and publications to collaborations with artists and engineers such as Vito Acconci and Buro Happold, aim to move between and consolidate various problems in the relation between objects and space. Limited edition of 7 + 2 AP.
