  • News - THE BRONZE DISKS - Irene Village Mall
    at the Irene Village Mall was completed by sculptors Guy Du Toit and myself in December 2007 The idea for the sculptural installation emerged from a previous work that I produced as a site specific installation for the 2004 Brett Kebble Art Awards In that intervention approximately 110 highly polished concave white resin disks were installed in the exhibition space to interrogate and disrupt conventional ways of viewing and interacting with exhibited art works as well as the spaces in which these works are placed and displayed We developed a similar idea in response to a commission opportunity at the newly built Irene Village Mall In September 2007 work began on the casting of 200 convex bronze disks at Guy Du Toit s foundry and studio in Swavelspoort Pretoria East The disks were individually cast sanded and finished to an effect ranging from reflective to naturally tarnished bringing a certain rawness and earthiness to their character Each disk is individually and sequentially numbered and inscribed with the name of fauna flora people of current or historic relevance or geological features common to Pretoria East and more specifically the Irene area Enabling the viewer s presence in the mall space through the medium of reflection presupposes the workings of each bronze disk as a space marker This is most effective in the highly polished finish of some of the bronze disks As with the white resin disks installed at the Brett Kebble Awards exhibition venue in 2004 people encounter the disks at the Irene Village Mall when they look view but also make the space through sometimes cursory casual or more focused interaction I observed how children playfully lean towards a selected disk while contorting their faces into hideous configurations the disk s surface hails interpellates the curious young onlooker A playful interaction with the disks allows for the activation of an otherwise mundane decorative feature By interacting with the disks in this way viewers are instrumental in bringing space into being The work of spatial activation is central to a definition of space In distinguishing between space and place De Certeau 1984 117 tells us that A space exists when one takes into consideration vectors of direction velocities and time variables Thus space is composed of intersections of mobile elements It is in a sense actuated by the ensemble of movements deployed within it Space occurs as the effect produced by the operations that orient it situate it temporalize it and make it function in a polyvalent unity of conflictual programs or contractual proximities The installation s potential as a viewable thing in space is brought to bear as an organic entity that permeates both an internal and external experience of time space and spatial relationships As interactive spatial markers not only do the bronze disks activate space through the intervention of a viewing public but they also demarcate and map space As the viewer herd family moves through the mall s space encountering the disks the effect is one
