about this work

This edition by Falke Pisano stems from the artist’s investigation into how mathematics can help people understand their relationship to the space they inhabit, and how it can provide a harmonious counterforce to the arbitrary control of public space. Related to her ongoing project, The Value in Mathematics, this new work commemorates the artist’s contribution to the 20th Biennale of Sydney: The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed, and her work for the associated publication, which was co-published by common-editions in March 2016.

about Falke Pisano

Falke Pisano’s diagrammatic works expose a loop, in which shifting abstract sculptural forms are conceived directly in relation to written and spoken language, implying an ongoing and morphing production of meaning. In the series Figures of Speech (2005-10), Pisano questions the nature of language and its relationship to the concrete object. The cycle The Body in Crisis (2011-2014) consists of a series of inquiries looking at the body in situations of crisis as an ongoing event, addressing notions of distance, repetition and representation. The Value in Mathematics (2015) asks questions surrounding the relationship between universal and particular; curricular versus cultural responsibility in education; and globalism and pluralism through the lens of logic, scientific research and abstraction-all of which are also pertinent issues in contemporary art.
