coccyx uncurling (2021) ash wood, sponge and carpet leftovers, textiles, dried flowers, dark-room print on concrete coccyx uncurling (2021) is a series of works specifically installed in the sunroom of the Villa Mondriaan, the room in which Piet Mondriaan rendered his pencil drawing “Gezicht op de Jacobskerk” (1898-1899). I was drawn to the surprising set of "scribbles" found in the lower section of the image, in comparison to the accuracy of the rendered scene: early signs of a progression toward abstraction, perhaps the very first? The freedom of these scribbled markings evoke a sense of rhythm and play, or perhaps frustration?! a clear break from more logical forms of observation. I used these scribbles to create a moment in which visitors could experience their own views of this scene by constructing a series of "seated sculptures". These works developed as a personal exploration of function and fiction, feminist architecture, and of bodily temperaments. As part of the group show Jong en Veelbelovend, 10 artists present their individual works throughout the museum in response to their chosen artwork of young Mondriaan. The production of this project was made possible with support of the Villa Mondriaan and the Mondriaan Fonds. https://villamondriaan.nl/tentoonstellingen/jong-en-veelbelovend-ruimte-voor-talent/ Images by Ilya Rabanovich
