For On Fold, Christoph Weber’s second solo exhibition at ProjecteSD, he proposes a new body of sculptures, where the artist’s known ability to defy the quality of the materials he works with and his interest in the process-based approach to art are clearly evidenced. Far from being a literal explanation to what the subject of the show is, On Fold, serves as a short, sharp statement to experience Weber’s work and his rich exploration of the sculptural possibilities.
The act of folding refers to a humble, simple, gentle action. It also denotes a certain sense of softness, which may seem contraposed to the inherent nature of some of the media used by Weber: concrete, steel, lead. On Fold is precisely about focusing on this antagonistic notion: going against the raw nature of the material to subvert it and move from there putting together what seems impossible to be connected. In a way On Fold is about finding new relations, transforming and finally expanding the idea of sculpture.
