Matter is by itself inert and meaningless; it acquires existence through form. The mediating role played by a work of art allows subject and object to take part in its being. The Art.Work project seeks to elaborate on this interplay between existence and form by problematising the relationship between image and narrative, subject and object, artist and beholder. Using a range of tools including narrative stimuli, re-enactment and staged still life, the project seeks to examine the immanent components of both art and the ‘the work’ of art. Simultaneously, the project endeavours to question assumptions about realism and fantasy, history and fiction, in an attempt to conceive possibilities to penetrate and reveal the sensible fabric of the aesthetic regime of art.
