The Junction show is coming down this weekend. I thought I'd take the time to post up the original proposal Lesley and I came up with for the installation:

For the main space, there will be two major elements. On the left, we envision a stack of books that are joined together in a twisted spine. This is literature as a body of work, a moving form, that grows organically and the ideas found inside occupy a physical space. We would like to paint the exterior (spine and cover) red to act as a strong accent colour against the stark white background. It also works with "pandemonium" as capital of Hell. This twisting, undulating worm of books will collapse, churn, and ultimately, fall apart into a chaos of paper, words, and images. Among the debris, we could use other books of your choice to display the wreckage. Some of this debris will trickle into the window on the right.

For the right side, we have a single chair. It's the small chair you keep inside your store. It has a nice Alice in Wonderland quality, that evokes the upside down, haphazard world of fantasy and ficiton. The size of the chair is also built for children, a time of wonder and imagination. Above this chair, we would like to install a papercut sculpture. It is a pentagonal sculpture that creeps and crawls along the ceiling and walls. Much like the spines of books, the papercuts have lines that remind the viewer of tendons and muscles. It is another body, structured in shape, but in form becomes organic. It is order and disorder. We would like to have this sculpture disrupt the perpendicular areas of wall and ceiling to create a geometric/organic growth. This also crawls into the window on the left. Both spaces will be occupied by these new bodies.
