65x50 cm | Filler, oak frame
The title means an ornamental cord or ribbon, but is also used when the police or military enclose an area.
The whole series is available at a discount price here.
Template is an array of works made by using pieces of wooden plates as templates. They function a bit as a mould or matrix for the finished work. The plates are attached inside the frame and after the first layer of filler had dried they are removed. The remaining empty spaces are filled with filler of a different colour.
Reminiscent of Richard Serra's Verb List I try to use simple and clearly defined actions to shape the filler in my works. This way there is always non-cognitive aspects of the production process.
