Installation, painting 80 x 102 x 10 cm, pedestal (96 x 87 x 40 cm) + cone.
Materials: 3 parts: papier maché, (pigmented) gypsum, iron, mesh
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7814_M518).
Untitled is an installation consisting of three parts: a painting, a sculpture and a pedestal, each individually referring to West's artistic development. The sculpture is a throwback to the Paßstücke: small, interactive, white-painted sculptures in mesh, plaster and iron that may be used as body extensions. The painting refers to the characteristic style of West's painting from the end of the 1970s: monochrome and in a thin layer, whereby the material comes through in all its fragility. The pedestal is the installation's connecting factor, and ensures that the whole goes to evoke an interior. By providing the pedestal with the same rough and, equally, fragile aspect as have the other components, it transcends its purely presentational and protective function.
