'Airspace' by Robert Stadler at Carpenters Workshop Paris

Questioning the status of the object, its function and its presence

“Airspace” is the new solo show from Robert Stadler, an installation at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris, the same space in which he presented “1000 jours” in 2011.

Throughout the work of the groundbreaking designer Robert Stadler there is an underlying experimental vein. He questions the status of the object, its function and its presence. Through a subtle shift of the frame, he accentuates the perception of the profession.

“Airspace”, (meaning the air above a country over its territory, including territorial waters).

Robert Stadler’s “Airspace” follows the same idea of occupying the three-dimensional space of the gallery, doing so in two stages: “cut_paste” and “PdT”, a reflection on the art of building, a story of humanity, a relationship with time and the work itself. This is a fundamental piece of existential speculation and, as Eugène Viollet-le-Duc once said “Good architecture, in all eras and for all peoples, including and especially in ancient times, depends for the most part, on structure, showing it and making it visible.” The designer makes this choice and provides us with his interpretation of the architectural gesture confronted with the past and the present, a demonstration that he develops on the scale of the object.

He proposes two different angles of approach to the space: “cut_paste” a construction of floor plans and “PdT” a three-dimensional composition, digging into the mass to remove matter. The two faces of a certain idea of architecture in an open space set up to his precise instructions.

“cut_paste” is a reflection on the act of covering edifices. It refuses to pander to standardised logic; the designer integrates the illusion of a random gesture to a piece that links back to a constructivist vision.
