Fire cabinet (2018)

The work focuses on the appearance of fire cabinets in institutions such as museums and galleries and approaches them as an artistic form.

The fire cabinet conjures up formalist aesthetics via its basic geometric elements, while it contradicts with traditional formalist exhibition logic that ignores the outside of the frame and the space. The cabinet is always there in the space whether during an exhibition hour or not. It is also there when different works are placed up or beside it.

While it is connected to the other fire cabinets with water pipe networks, it also connects the global water mass into the different spaces. The cabinet, unlike a painting, opens up to the infrastructure systems connected to this network, not to the empty wall. Its form has an international reputation; copies itself to every museum and gallery even if it shows minor changes.
