Publisher Statement:Matter of Engagement, Florian Roithmayr’s Platform residency, considers how we learn through action and experience rather than instruction. Florian is interested in the limits of language and the relationships of trust that people form when working side by side, sharing skills. Last year, the artist worked as an apprentice to ‘concrete beautician’ Viorel Bratu on a number of construction sites in Germany. For his residency at Site Gallery, Florian invites Viorel to work with him on the construction of a delicate yet large-scale, 4 mm thick concrete wall in the gallery. This is a process similar to painting a mural or fresco, where a surface fantasy, a near flawless version of concrete, is strived for.
