SEQUENCE #7 | Medusa
Suprainfinit gallery is delighted to invite you to « Medusa », a site-specific installation by artist GilesEldridge part of the SEQUENCE project.
The vitrine project — Sequence — was first formulated in the office of the gallery in early 2019, in thefirst weeks of my job while adjusting from London to Bucharest. Thinking of how every single inch ofspace is monetised in London and how politicised and scarce space is everywhere, the aim to transformthe latent vitrine into a vital space seemed a desirable gesture. It is a 5 metre long vitrine, differing inwidth from 43cm to 47cm due to the thickness of the window frames, has an upside-down L shape withan even narrower access entry. Unused, the vitrine is both visible and invisible for the passers-by as itblends with the façade of the block of flats placed at the intersection of Plantelor with Mântuleasa street.Sequence is an uncanny space precisely because it is emersed with potentiality and constraints. Eachexhibition installed stimulates the next one as the vitrine grows and spreads in becoming a space of itsown, quasi detached from the gallery and the neighbourhood. The space gets more and more elastic withevery visual assemblage, with bodies stepping in and out, with each gaze or frugal view.Welcome to Medusa that unearths Sequence #7 and promises future ramifications in the 24/7 windowfront.
