Performativity of Space
In his installations in Warsaw and Milan, Christos Voutichtis reflects on boundaries and ‘anarchist’ architectures, where space is defined by external causes.
The architect and artist Christos Voutichtis from Studio URMA explores the boundaries between architecture, visual arts and theory in his latest project Moving and Space forming Objects (The Perfomativity of the Space).
Using the urban space as the starting point for artistic engagements and visions, he transfers virtual reality into our physical environment, simulating spaces which do not obey the normal rules of architecture, but rather create space situations without program, rules, control or order.
What happens to architecture when one speaks of an extension/displacement or even of the disappearance of borders? The aim of the project was not to create a space which would be distinguished by its static structural design, functionality or durability, but rather and much more, to create an abstract architectonic concept of a space which reacts directly to external causes, not controllable through its performativity, that allows the unforeseeable.
