Margaret Roberts TEST2 2020, fabric and location,Articulate Turns Ten, Articulate, Sydney.

TEST2 divides Wladyslaw Strzeminski’s 1926 painting Architectural Composition #1, along the line that divides its two shapes, leaving one hanging from the rafters of the building and the other dissolving into its invisible space.  





TEST2 repeats the first TEST which was made in plastic on a window in Paris by Jacek Przybyszewski earlier in the year. It is half an architectural painting whose remainder dissolves into the invisible space of its location, enabling the painting to merge even more with its subject, to take the painting's engagement with architecture and location further along in that direction. Making TEST again here, also made me think about making more TESTs, to further emphasise location alongside the apparently singular painting.
