Paul Elliman – Body Alive with Signals

The light whistles and flashes red. Guided by ferrite metal. Passage still takes place in electricity. A heat engine that reproduces its own parts when they break down. Is it money or is money just thought. Lost inside everything. Resonance of a dead car battery. No one to speak the car. The shade that threatens to return to life. The closer I get to you. Lower front strut brace. Left passenger door window, glass regulator channel run. Door handle pull cable. Window trims in topaz-pearl, silver birch, steel grey, rust. Mineral deposits of salt, broken glass, dust. Fables in which all things are alive and give signs. Voices that imitate the sounds of the press or the blacksmith. Paint shop agates. Signal red. Amber and ruby tail lights. Pulsing, reminiscing. Gestural, phonetic. Songs from clouds of ash, smoke and soot. A very seductive scent. People noticing their own language. Walk about and become what is happening. Carried away on an endless belt. Grounded or in flight. Indicators will let you know. The history of those feelings. When it was in the air.

Body Alive with Signals is a solo exhibition of artist and designer Paul Elliman, at Objectif Exhibitions in Antwerp, from May 3 until June 28, 2014.
