Dear William Leonard Pereira
Dear William Leonardo Piera, Installation, braided cotton cord, dimensions variable, 2015
I use knotting techniques as a type of connective drawing device, a way to create structure and define space. It is a transformative technique that combines the reedy and slack with volume and shape. The performative, repetitive nature of the technique imbues an element of time as much as it speaks of space and volume.
Dear William Leonardo Piera represents ongoing explorations into the haptic quality of craftbased sculptures/installations existing within the built environment. The installations’ existence inside an administrative building (within a private institution) asks fundamental questions concerning expressions of power in the built environment.
