TEXTURAN - Installation at Krisni Rhodcik
Piran, Slovenia, April 2007

‘Experience lies in the details.’

This work was part of a group exhibition at the end of a 10-day residency in Piran. The installation makes use of detailed photographs of the textures of the buildings in Piran. The detail shots revealed an essential part of the origins of Piran's picturesque character. These textures are very rarely noticed. For the exhibition I printed these textures on strips of paper and wrapped them round the tops of the pillars. There they were as unnoticeable as in the city, but did add a unique element to the complete picture of the exhibition space. They formed a playful surprise for the aware on-viewer.
