Laura McLardy: Line of Least Resistance

29/08/2014 — 31/12/2017


A crack, a line, a negative sculpture, a splintering imprint, a tremor stretching across the six levels of the office building. Alongside the fissure of the staircase wall, a landscape of difference, a trace of motion, unraveling the solid structural shell, opens up subcutaneously.

On occasion of the opening of Line of Least Resistance, an accompanying script will be published, documenting the choreography of ascent and descent along the rift, by Elisa Ricci, Frey Faust, Holger Hartung and Francesca Pedullá.
