JOHANNES KNOOPS

  • JOHANNES KNOOPS
  • Motivated by issues of memory and place I explore hidden urban narratives.
    Metaphor, narration and wit are my primary tools in creating works that examine
    past significance in order to speak to the present.
    Here in this installation I examine the fleeting performative nature of construction...
    future memories. This work celebrates the frenetic choreography of a Manhattan
    construction site. It is a dynamic dance whose performance transforms into memories
    once construction comes to a completion. Ultimately that dynamic poetry fades away.
    Though static, the dramatic tower suspended above embodies those poetic memories
    of movement.
