Marc Handelman Continuous Grounds


Continuous Grounds

--as in a form, material or image extending beyond the visible / an ongoing procedure: legal, psychological or aesthetic / an edifying form of rhetoric, basis of identity, or territory / of a battle, a dispute, or dissensus / of a structural dimension of landscape that can allude to its material formation over millennia / of landscape as a pictorial field expanding, endlessly mutable, and often identical / of a background as it becomes integrated with objects in the foreground, as in an appearance of continuity, a suturing together of disparate spaces or times / as in sedimentary ossification that catalogues all of its violent displacements, or that contains them invisibly / as in the formless or invisible space that engulfs or falls away from a subject / a moving backdrop / as a way of implicating part to whole or the micro as a form of monumentality



1.

a natural stone or rock that has been selected and fabricated, trimmed, cut, drilled, ground, or other to specific sizes or shapes / color, texture, pattern and surface finish are normal requirements / duration of an image or, the measure of the ability of dimension stone to endure and maintain its essential and distinctive characteristics of strength, resistance to decay, and appearance / an oblique index / a non-oriented image-object / territorial ciphers / the ostensible clocks of an eternal temporal register / enforced dissimulation / a condition of affectivity made more real on the condition of this affectivity / Landscape as a certain form of blindness

2.

an incessant projection of light and mound / the mutability of a demonstration of frozen views / an endless document as un-natural history / a silhouette as motif and afterimage / the contours of the making of an archive: bleeds, layout, framing, masking, and layering / a natural border / a form that creates refuge through shadow / the image as aggregate or a painting turning into light / the picture as a physical repository of images it cannot contain / painting as the depot of the phantasmagoric / a projection as a kind of stain / The Untersberg, or formerly, “The Mountain of Light” or, “The Mountain of the People Carried Away”/ An Archive for a Mountain

3.

the false and affective image -- the concept of “a nature already composed, already totalized, already instituted to neutralize politics” / background stains / the presentation of a report of future projections, goals, diversifications, procurements / as in what can be sustained as an impossibility / the flowering pictures of the TBL, or the Triple Bottom Line, or The Three Pillars, or People, Profit, Planet / botanical object as word-and-thought-defying insignia, red-herring, sustainable and endlessly deployable typology
