The Substance of Things Unseen
August to September 2016
The Substance of Things Unseen imagined a series of modernist facades based on Le Corbusier's drawings to calculate the "golden section" – a seemingly "perfect" ratio, or divine proportion. Here the "golden section" was obscured by a series of curtains and flags that subtly interrupted Le Corbusier's modernist ideal by bringing the viewer back to a potential that existed not in some unattainable utopia but in the here and now, of Slessor Gardens.
