Mahony, ‘The Gathering’, 2016, Galerie Emanuel Layr

The Gathering is a tower of 5 shelves that face each other and form squares on different levels. With this form, an inaccessible space is created in the centre of the shelf. On every board a line of objects is placed. Walking around the object, it seems as if these abstract objects would turn away from the observer to face the inner part of the shelf, the empty centre. Refering to the presentation of artifacts in ethnological museums these objects can be seen as ideas for models of monuments.
