The Material Poetics of Fabien Bürgy: Reflections on Spikes
Fabien Bürgy’s work creates interstitions in which the virtual becomes indistinguishable from the real, and the real becomes impregnated with the virtual. Spikes is a sculpture-installation that exists in a threshold in which matter becomes digital and the digital becomes matter. This review addresses the many conceptual layers particular to this artwork, and wishes to preserve the aura of inscrutability that belongs to its poetics.
