To create an outstanding atmosphere of a showcase, the quality of the artwork itself is of course essential, but how to present it is also indispensable. Matte white rectangular pedestals or clean plain wood frames assist artworks to stand out. I assume that most of the artists know their discreet but powerful effects. Normally, they are required to be stable, homogenous and smooth in order to set off artworks without disturbing them. However, what if there are unstable, uneven and rough pedestals or frames which exist as strong as artworks or perhaps more? Which is the subject and which is the object? I don’t have an answer to this question at this time, but if that relationship between the subject and the object may be able to make a new artwork, I would like to see that.
