In Potentialis, Lotte Van den Audenaeren’s most recent site-specific urban intervention, text becomes a timekeeper, eroding over a period of months or changing with light and the movement of passersby. At Moore St. Market, her text-based installations in vinyl adhesive film offer a series of apparitions simultaneously present and absent. As light and movement vary throughout each day, so do each of the works, at times blending into the existing market activities.
Van den Audenaeren’s installation is the second Participatory Project in a series of works by ISCP residents at Moore St. Market, one of New York City’s few remaining indoor food markets. In December 2011, ISCP resident Minja Gu opened Atlantic Pacific co., a fully operational yet fictional rare goods import/export business. Graduate art students participating in the ISCP Studio Assistant Program assisted in the production of both Atlantic Pacific co. and Potentialis.
