Christine Corday engages a materials practice as artist with the evolving human scale of perception and fundamental forces. She works with temperature, material states, elemental metals as well as creates further medium often in artist-led collaborations with international scientists and science organizations.

SPACEWALKER / +43F 14.7p


17 NOV 2017 - 20 JAN 2018



Series of works defined by temperature and pressure––the cosmological hammer and chisel. Focusing the tools of the vast for the object’s most intimate, Corday's studio-cum-cosmic practice folds elemental signatures as the medium of these works.


The object is manipulated as a primary stroke between phases of matter, a material line-of-sight or line-of-experience which bends, or folds one’s bias and ability to sense. The object is perceived bound as a temperature, pressure or location relative to the other; with no view of the object as privileged.


In partnership with Barrett Barrera Projects, Corday debuts the first edition works of Spacewalker : her ongoing series of “uniformity”. The works are

material re-orientations or sensory embodiments shifting one’s perception of location as separated from outer space to the realization of one’s exact location as walking it.  All Spacewalker positions are relative to any other in all space.
