Not for You: a two person exhibition; at LoBe, Berlin in April 2011.
TC McCormack and Oliver Zwink will expose their ongoing dialogue at Lobe as a structure of mediating ideas. For this collaboration they have set out a boundary encircling common and contested ground, to collaborate on these preoccupations: can we entertain the absence of human agency or recognize a world without us, can we consider how other agencies consider us or our structures, can non- relational structures facilitate other agencies or is nature ambivalent? Who’s thinking who, are we nature or is nature us?
Their project takes these joint and opposing ideas of subjectivity towards spatial thinking, placement and the human relation to objects as a starting point to create a dialogue between existing works and work to be created in collaboration during an ongoing residency in LoBe. Objects, drawings and models, colour, paper and text, film and photography will accumulate to an associative choreography of gestures, observations and notations addressing urban space, architecture and design. Reflecting the outline of their approach, the process of constant adding and removing, the space will take less the shape of an exhibition that addresses the viewer, but rather an open laboratory in which both artists leave visual traces, forming a common map of their settlement/debate.
'Are you not fed up at finding yourselves forever locked into language alone? We want to gain access to things themselves, not only to their phenomena. The real is not remote; rather, it is accessible in all the objects mobilized throughout the world.'
