From the Catalogue:
FLESHOUT can be seen as the enhancement of Czerlitzki’s dust-series. Whereas the trace herein defined their process-related making as much as their handling, exhibiting and further being, FLESHOUT (re-)presents the sealing of a precedent process and a new form of distance that is created through a thick layer of liquid acrylic being applied recto and verso. The viewer is finally confronted with a finished work, he can no longer take part in the works’ further transformation, whether it was leaving a simple trace in or wiping away all the dust from the work’s surface. In a place where he was able to fully track the artist’s process, now the varnish-like closure keeps him on a maximum distance and presents a pre-ready, hermetic object.
