The Notion refers to the space of the chapel and the materials the work is made of. Notions of the space, previous works of art and their parts are layered together. New things are always generated on the basis of some of the old. The environment is under constant change, but parallel to this, the stage of constant change is something permanent.
The Notion forms a dialogue with the space. The details of the chapel that aren’t part of the architecture; details that have somehow ended up there, such as a pile of timber in front of the altar, had certain order and meaning, but at the same time they looked like they shouldn’t have been there. They resembled construction waste or something that is about to be built.
I took these woods and reorganized them in relation to other parts of my installation and the form of the chapel. After the exhibition I reinstated them as they were.
