Description

“56L (2004) is perhaps the most ephemeral of Menné’s works. Like 114L, its main components are molten glue and a fan that blows the glue into strands. However, where the glue in 114L was shaped into closed forms, a more entropic process was set in motion for 56L. The liquid glue was blown onto an aluminum ladder installed in the corner of a room. After several weeks of production, a nodule formed at the top of the ladder and webs of glue cascaded down the steps, across the walls onto the floor. Using the architecture of the gallery to define the boundaries of the work, (…) Menné insits on a specific experience of place and time as a part of the work.”
– Robin Clark
