CH-8750 , 2013 6 wooden dowels (each 240 cm) 5 chains (each 240 cm) Two-parted, total length 5280 cm Kunsthaus Glarus Photo: David Aeby  A long procession of chain and wood, the sprawling installation is a sculpture, a prop, a tool and thus a responsive and tactile object to be handled and played with and changed over the period of the installation. As we move through the space of the exhibition we create a drawing, is a line in space that creates both fragments and entire sentences of marks, tracing a history of movement. This drawn line thus has the potential to divide the exhibition space, to demarcate one side from the other, top from bottom, horizontal from vertical, this artwork from that artwork, leaving one curious most of all, as to what it might look like from up there.
