The Hole Idea // Post Brothers

It’s a cubist bit of dark, an aperture in any surface, and yet a thing, physically promiscuous, malleable and expandable, foldable and rollable, poured, printed, or painted. IT does what it pleases. It’s behavior is as elastic as its form.

The Hole Idea examines the aesthetic, philosophical and socio-political possibilities of the portable hole. A principle object in cartoon physics, the portable hole can serve as a tool to account for an irrational world through its myriad precarious properties.

Post Brothers is a critical enterprise that includes Matthew Post—an independent curator and writer often working from elevators in Oakland, Antwerp, and Berlin. Post Brothers received an MA in Curatorial Practice from the California College of the Arts, San Francisco (2009); and a BFA from Emily Carr Institute, Vancouver (2006). He has curated exhibitions and presented lectures and projects in Poland, Mexico, Canada, the United States, Germany, Austria, Belgium, and China, where he contributed a video and an unrealized screenplay in the 9th Shanghai Biennale (2012).

He recently curated  “The Excluded Third, Included” at Galerie Emanuel Layr in Vienna (2014) and “Clinamen” at Xawery Dunikowski Museum of Sculpture (Krolikarnia), Department of the National Museum, Warsaw (2013). He has an ongoing  library/publication project, “Memoirs Found In A Bathtub”, at Objectif  Exhibitions in Antwerp. His essays and articles have been published in Annual Magazine, the Baltic Notebooks of Anthony Blunt, Cura, Fillip,  Kaleidoscope, Mousse, Nero, Pazmaker, Punkt, and Spike Art Quarterly, as well as in numerous artist publications and exhibition catalogues.

Es una oscuridad cubista,  una apertura en cualquier superficie. Un objeto promiscuo, maleable y expandible.  Se puede colapsar, así como enrollar, imprimir, o pintar.  En fin, hace lo que le plazca.  Su comportamiento, así como su forma es elástico.

La idea del hoyo examina las posibilidades estéticas, filosóficas y socio-políticas del hoyo portátil.  El hoyo portátil es un objeto-principio en la física del mundo de los dibujos animados, objeto que como herramienta sirve para relatar un mundo irracional a través de un sinnúmero de propiedades precarias.
