The Secret Life of Buildings, CAAD, University of Texas at Austin, 10/2016



This is a call for works of art or design that (i) might fairly be called ‘objects’ by the nascent philosophies of Speculative Realism and Object Oriented Ontology, and that (ii) will throw light on architecture as a peculiar set of objects, phenomena, ideas, relations, connections, skills, materials, obligations, and operations. A selection of twenty of these Objects—all physical and all, whether singular or configurations of smaller objects, falling within the four Parameters set out below—will be exhibited for two weeks around a three-day symposium to be staged by the Center for American Architecture and Design (CAAD) at The University of Texas at Austin in October 2016 called “The Secret Life of Buildings.” More about the Symposium here.


Stage One Jurors:  Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg, Clay Odom.

Stage Two Jurors:  Graham Harman, Ian Bogost, Leslie Van Duzer, Levi Bryant, Winka Dubbeldam, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Albena Yaneva, Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg

Solo show, Gallery Hippolyte, 30.6.-29.7.2016

Attach, Expand, Collapse

Sari Palosaari’s exhibition consists of two installations. While creating new situations, they also address issues that affect the built environment and thereby our everyday life. The works were inspired by new building materials that change the perception of time and space in our living environment.

It’s A Silent Agent Doing Its Thing makes use of a soundless cracking agent, expansive cement that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban construction sites without any noise or vibration. The moment when the stones crack cannot be determined beforehand, as it is the result of pressure created by the expanding cement. But whereas the silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in construction, in Palosaari’s piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours or viewers’ schedules. The piece also features a studio recording of the sound of stone splitting.

Building Images extends the Hippolyte exhibition space with a glass-walled structure that comes to contain traces of human gestures and activity. Increasingly common in modern construction, glass walls highlight issues of showing, concealment and observation by presenting them in our everyday environment in new ways, forcing life inside these transparent spaces to adapt to reciprocal gazes. “I am fascinated by intentional and unintentional bodily action associated with dwelling in architectural spaces. Transparent spaces challenge our bodily existence as our life takes place in an intermediate place between the private and the public space,” says Sari Palosaari.

The exhibition has been supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
