Exhibition: Project "Empty Form"
“… a shell in which anything can happen,
the emptiness of which must be understood
as irreducibly formal, and irreducibly real.”
Emptiness designates a new category of aesthetic object.
Architecturally speaking, an empty object is an object that offers a particular type of experience. It posses neither absolute meaning nor absolute function. Yet its value is not merely relative. It is empty in the way that a promise can be empty.. It remains a promise, if only in form. What it promises is not the realization of a dream or a fantasy. Instead, it promises to remain an island of emptiness in the midst of the contemporary ether, which still abhors a vacuum.
Question of form tend quickly to turn into questions of content. If the history of architecture has anything to do with the history of space, then the discipline has not come very far over the last century
A content is…
program, performance, or event,
Symbol, image, icon,
from another tradition: of affect, experience, or just feeling.
But why not allow the form of plenum itself to guide our thoughts for a moment,
without presuming that it contains or produces anything?
