Craft Victoria and Lord Coconut proudly present Min Capp.
Min Capp's installation is intended to evoke a sense of balance and equilibrium. Plumb bobs are suspended from the ceiling at varying heights and find a point of balance just above small white structures sitting on a black surface below. These structures symbolise and reference architectural details and buildings, emphasising and evoking the notion of a symbiotic relationship between the plumb bobs and architectural forms. This work is presented in black and white as a means of focusing on the elements that make up the installation – the plumb bobs are formed copper, powder coated black and the architectural structures are wooden blocks painted white.
The humble plumb bob, used for thousands of years and a symbol of the building crafts is central to Capp's creative representation and exploration of place, identity and home. The plumb bob is a tool which facilitates the translation from a two dimensional envisioned plan to three dimensional material structure. This simple haptic tool and its application is intrinsic to the built structures and architectural forms which become a home with all their internal nuances, a space in which we embody. In her work, the plumb bob is experienced as the central pivot that is always returned to, a point of equilibrium, a representation of place, order and harmony.
