FOUNDATION STONE
Foundation Stone operates in the ‘flux space’ between certainties. The Kunstverein is a highly provisional space, and Foundation Stone suggests a beginning moment, although it is not clear where this moment lies. This version of the Kunstverein is built on the back of abandoned projects, where any attempt to take these projects forward would result in an artwork of ‘heaviness’. The abandonment of projects is a common theme in Andrew Spackman’s work, where ‘provisionality’ is integral to the process and output. All of these projects are real, in that the ‘intent’ is, and could be, to carry them through to conclusion.
