"Space Affair: Narine Kchikian and Jacque Liu"
2005-12-10 until 2005-12-26
Museum of New Art
Pontiac, MI, USA United States of America

SPACE AFFAIR is a collaboration between artists Narine Kchikian and Jacque Liu, exploring the architectural space of the Museum of New Art. Engaging the physical elements of this given space, Kchikian and Liu transform a site that usually houses artwork into artwork. In doing so, they challenge perceptions of architecture and drawing, as well as the notion of art and audience. "Liquid architecture is a fluid construction that breathes, pulses, leaps as one art form and lands as another. It is an architecture with doors and hallways that lead the visitor both outward and inward. It is a poetic space that speaks to process. It is an architecture in the process of making.

SPACE AFFAIR is a seminal model of liquid architecture in the real world.

Such a manipulation within a constructed space is destabilizing, shifting, irresolute. The visitor inhabits the space as the space inhabits the visitor. This uber-construct is a space of simultaneity, a space where specificity is both heightened and collapsed. Within this space the artists create an architectural superimposition of place, but where walls and their intended meaning collide, where presumed expectations multiply and divide.

SPACE AFFAIR is the out-of-body embodiment of an architecture, or conversely, it is the embodiment of a created structure as the embodiment of all that is possible within that structure."

- Christopher Ottie from Being There: Finding New Art In All The Old Spaces
