VERNISSAGE: COLIN GUILLEMET + CHRIS FITE-WASSILAK "TRANSCENDENTAL STUFF"


 Chris Fite-Wassilak is a writer and critic based in London. He is a regular contributor to Apollo, Art Monthly, Art Papers, ArtReview and frieze. He is a contributing editor of ArtReview, and co-organiser with artist Anne Tallentire of the event ‘hmn’. His short book of essays, Ha-Ha Crystal (2016) is published by Copy Press.  Colin Guillemet is an artist based in Zurich. He makes works wherever and any which way sculpture and conceptual approaches happen to meet; and is generally fond of the space which opens up when the viewer understands something but doesn’t yet understand what he or she understood. His work has been shown internationally, including recently in Dienstgebaude, Zurich; La Sécu, Lille; Aksioma Institute for Contemporary art and Galerija Skuc, Ljubljana; and Ha Gamle Prestegard, Stavanger, Norway.  Transcendental Stuff will be presented:  a) as a contract between (i) sender and receiver, (ii) form and content; b) and as an entity embodying all instances of interaction thereof.  Abiding to the following statutes, Transcendental Stuff: (c) will contain all projections, interjections and objectifications within the timeframe of fourteen days; (d) cannot be taken as the last word on the subject matter; (e) cannot be used as a precedent or evidence. All equivalences between unfolding, exuberance and elevated states – of any kind – will remain subject to discretionary confidentiality between all respective parties as outlined in a) (i) and a) (ii).
