Unimaginable Happenings: Material Movements in the Plane of Composition

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter explores material movements in the plane of composition in art production. It aims to demonstrate the expansive force that undoes representation and creates something unimaginable yet precisely true-to-life. The chapter describes the movement whereby the plane of material invades the plane of composition, in order to reconfigure the dynamics of practice, and argues for a materialist performativity in the event of imaging.

Keywords: material movements; plane of composition; art production; representation; performativity; imaging
