Noble & Superior Projects presents IN DEFINITE SPACE, 2/19


Featuring the work of Markus Hahn and Sean Ward

February 19-March 23, 2010

Noble & Superior Projects

1418 W. Superior Chicago IL

Opening Reception: Friday, February 19 (6-10pm)

Noble & Superior Projects is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition IN DEFINITE SPACE, opening Friday, February 19, featuring the work of Markus Hahn and Sean Ward. Viennese artist Markus Hahn’s installation 14th, Delta Industries is an abstract architectural model that explores the possibilities of form using everyday materials. It is a figurative representation of Hahn’s unique practice which breaks with the conceptual tradition of his formal education and instead relies on an intuitive and material-based creative process. Allowing the inherent nature of recycled, found, and everyday materials to dictate the character of this reconstructed space, Hahn creates a sublime environment constructed from the mundane. In its finished form, the object supersedes any specific context or field of architectural knowledge; it asserts its presence as a utopian creation.

Sean Ward’s installation, Room for the Work, is a meditation on creative practices, making contemplation visible through the ordering of objects. Ward improvises based on the materials of each space, utilizing them both as inspiration but also as a set of creative tools. Ward surrenders to his surroundings in a thorough investigation of his own practice. Examination of the physical remnants of this process allows the viewer to feel a quality of “living in” rather than just merely looking.
