Arrangement for Minor Deviations, 2012

Commission for Aarhus School of Business, Aarhus (selected views)

Arrangement for Minor Deviations is a site-specific mural that consists of a series of painterly interventions on the architectural interiors of Building S at Aarhus School of Business, Aarhus, Denmark. Generally the interventions/paintings are placed in heavily trafficked areas, primarily the area surrounding the central staircase. At times they appear where one would not typically expect a mural, other times they interact intimately with smaller architectural elements such as handrails and stairs.  One of the main intentions has been to create a visual high voltage relationship between the paintings and the architecture – both overall and down to the smallest details.

The basic pictorial element of the paintings is a little filled circle, about the size of a coin. This element - considered as a dimensionless point from where the picture planes' two dimensions (lines and surfaces) originate - generated some compositional possibilities that were explored in relationship to the architecture. The point of departure of the paintings is constructed with a certain formal stringency. Yet, they also contain deviations, or breaches, of their internal, established logic. Deviation is a principle that characterizes the compositions on many levels. As such, it is implied that they embody alternative and potential conditions - an imaginable otherness.

This selection of photographs is not a comprehensive representation of the project.
