Constrained Objects

Based on a fictional story that presents the life of plastic components, this book takes the form of a digital collage made from photographs and computer graphics. By simulating the different stages of an assembly line, the polymorphic character and aesthetic properties of these plastic components are revealed. The texts are taken directly from various software documentation manuals. Paradoxically, bringing these texts together in a coherent way tends to produce a narrative in which objects become self-propelled entities constrained by unknown forces, insofar as the human subject is itself instrumentalized.

Alban Loosli
Exhibiting the White Cube

In 1976, the term white cube was coined by artist and art critic Brian O'Doherty to designate a scenic layout that aims to neutralize the exhibition space by covering its walls with matte white paint and installing a homogeneous lighting system. Since then, this scenic layout has become widely accepted and acts as tacit norm in the artworld. This book proposes three essays on this subject, as well as six series of drawings that look at the relationships that works of art are likely to have with the exhibition space.
