PROP

 

Collaboration between Emma Ewan, Petter Yxell & Augustus Veinoglou:

 

Miniatures by Emma Ewan

Sets/Staging by Petter Yxell

Figures by Augustus Veinoglou

Setting out from the double meaning of the word 'prop' as verb, the notion of propping up created a formal framework for this presentation.

A collaboration between three artists whose previous work has been characterised by architectural references, here those influences remain as a leitmotif in the understanding of architecture as a skeletal system. Yxell's lattice-like structures act as a host for a range of smaller sculptural components provided by Ewan and Veinoglou. Prop as noun then, in the sense of theatrical props, is evoked in this method of 'staging' sculpture.
