A Reality of Convenience

A Reality of Convenience is an installation that plays with perspective, revealing itself in a spatial drawing. Twelve black, burnt Christmas trees are horizontally mounted on a wall in the exhibition space. The tops of the trees point into the room, forcing the viewer to stand in front of them, and providing a rare chance to see a bird’s eye view.
The trees point at the opposite wall, where a close-up photo of a zebra’s behind has been mounted. The black and white pattern of its stripes reminds one of a traditional perspective drawing with a disappearing vanishing point. The floor of the space is empty – everything plays itself out from the two walls and the space in between, which the two images themselves create.
