UNE

HIGH LINE NEW YORK CITY

508 W 25th Street, New York, New York

November 7 - December 12, 2008

 

Weathering Steel

105" x 103" x 197" / 2.2m x 2.3m x 5m / 2 tons

 

UNE is the first Form of the Protoist Series; a series Corday began as a painter replacing paint with heat. Protoist works investigate the material through distinctive cuts suspending the medium at a moment between melt and cut as well as between sensory stimulus and definiton.

 

Touch indexically registers memory on the material surface as rust–an intimate yet shared public surface.
