Artist Statement

oscitant enterprises 

 

 

a global corporation, an idea, a framework, a real world nomadic studio.  

 

this portfolio highlights:

1) oscitant enterprises' new calligraphic logo

2) a new mobile production unit [installation as drawing] 

3) drawings and an object/archive from three ongoing series of history / media drawings 

4) the nomadic studios OESPG/TFO+FOS [temporary field office / forward operating space] where these works are produced, stored and exhibited.    

 

the studio OESPG/TFO consists of modularly sub-divided groups of sculptures, containing hand made archive boxes.  these boxes are used for storage and transport, as tables, pedestals, seating, etc. they contain drawings in a very wide variety of sizes, media, subject matter and finish.  the FOS is an open space set up as an extension of the TFO, where new and archived elements are installed in ever shifting, fluid constellations.

 

in this open setting drawing is employed as a highly sophisticated tool with which to visualize, develop, analyze, record and rework ideas.  it is also integral to the development and spatial construction of a system which facilitates the investigation and articulation of these ideas.

 

production is honed to enable the extreme compression and expansion of form and content in an evolving installation which is growing and shrinking simultaneously as it becomes more complex by the day.
