Orchestrating Coincidence - documentation of the one-off site-specific exhibition
at gallery Nieuw Charlois, Rotterdam (15.01 - 25.02.23)
Orchestrating Coincidence is a project by Hilde Onis and Liza Wolters, an edition of 30 unique sculptures existing of 26 individuals, 2 pairs and 5 artist proofs.
With Orchestrating Coincidence, Hilde Onis and Liza Wolters take on the representation of the in-between,resulting in a series of 30 sculptures that defy odds by finding connection at their breaking point. By developing a method that aims to constrain but meanwhile evokes accident the series’ individual objects have a say in controlling it’s own contours.
Departing from these notions, they explore existing linear views of (gendered) positive and negative space in sculpture. The thirty unique sculptures are paired with an emphasizin publication that plays with character assignment. The printed leporello catalog integrally touches upon what it means to collect and be one of a whole.
