David Fusco’s works are distillations from an abundance of slowly organised material, rather than absolute, revealed statements. The pieces are realised as partial sequences, in balanced groups; similes of common experiences composed of objects which are re-manufactures, hybrids and inventions; instruments, tools and containers. They backtrack experience, holding and revealing memory and sensation. The works don’t contain riddles to be unravelled – the pieces are monumental in that their physical presence and formal geometry are assimilated immediately, the detail and internal relationships acting on and confirming the first understanding.
We commissioned ‘Untitled’ as part of the BAA Art Programme in 1996. The works were installed at Heathrow Terminal 1 Airside Office Corridor until 2015.
