The Crown (Colonnade) Installation view Elsewhere/Elders, Javier Marchan 2006, Wall House

Six columns, serpentine arrangement, paper 160gr, glass, descending from 4.15 meters to 3.10 meters; serpentine geometry; naturally projecting 6 halo shapes on ceiling.

During his stay in the Wall House, Marchan became fascinated with the tension Hejduk summons up between the two and three dimensionality, a tension referred to by Marchan as the fourth dimension. Fascinating though the spatiality in the Wall House is, Marchan maintains that the building in essence is a two dimensional image, a still life. This tension, the fourth dimension, is what Marchan regards as the principal concept for his solo exhibition Elsewhere/Elders, together with the strong sense of symbolism Hejduk invokes in his work. Marchan produced a set of twelve silk screens '12 & the Secret Walkway' and a series of spatial installations of mixed media throughout John Hejduk's architecture.
