In this specific work for EYES ONLY the viewers are looking from a static position and the sculpture presents itself twirling. The topography of the display is upside down: the work is anchored in the ceiling, the base is a mirror ball motor. To display literally means to unfold. In the case of “Enter Garland” though, we sense that the logic of presentation has a stronger link to the dynamics of loops and entanglement along circular motion and hypnotic graphics. A modus operandi linking to the repetitive, voluptuous logic of ornamentation, decoration, ephemera and garlands i.e. shifting surfaces and forms that keep folding, without beginning or end, like a space with no horizon.Nanna Abell (*1985) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
