Robert Wecshler: MoneyPosted: April 13, 2014
Wecshler intervenes with the familiar: alternating the customs and objects of which define everyday human life. He aims to provoke engagement by concentrating on such familiar objects that are not necessarily of immediate beauty or aesthetic wonder, in order to enlighten his audience through giving meaning to the meaningless. There is an element of humour in his sculptures and installations which I think is crucial for engaging humans the way he intends to.
The work of his that was particularly relevant to me is the geometrical and symmetrical coin sculptures. In terms of my own practise, I can appropriate a depiction of the relationship between life and monetary society through the knowledge of sacred geometry: geometric explanations for means of life and the personal use of symmetry.
The images of them speak for themselves but maybe photographed in an urban environment would be even more powerful, almost camouflaged.
