Artist Céline Condorelli takes a de-commissioned TV studio in an iconic Chamberlin, Powell and Bonn building from 1970, as the site for Additionals, a series of sculptures that appear in installation, on film and in text. The exhibition marks the end of Condorelli’s journey as ‘Tiger’ in a collective experiment framed by British avant-garde composer Cornelius Cardew’s 1967 score The Tiger’s Mind.
Held within a defunct TV studio, in the basement of the brutalist building, are different prop-like objects, structures operating at a scale between furniture and architecture, for example Structure for Reading and Structure for Preparing a Piano. The title, Additionals, directly refers to Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Oggetti in Meno (‘objects one can do without’, usually translated as Minus Objects), a disparate collection of pseudo-functional objects from 1965-1966.
Additionals was developed during The Tiger’s Mind (Sternberg Press, 2012) a publishing project initiated by artists Will Holder and Beatrice Gibson who invited a group of practitioners to work collectively using Cornelius Cardew’s 1967 score of the same name. Each practitioner adopted a character from the score with Jesse Ash as ‘Wind’, Condorelli as ‘Tiger’, Gibson as ‘Circle’, Holder as ‘Amy’, John Tilbury as ‘Mind’, and Alex Waterman as ‘Tree’. The structures of Additionals attempt to articulate the characters’ relationships, and they are activated in the exhibition through texts, screen tests and performances.
