When lightning strikes, closely knit particles — (any very small subatomic piece) — separate. Dissolving from their previously closeness, a great charge releases from the separation. In Markus Butkereit’s show UNFOLDED PERCEPTIONS a theme emerges: the rearrangement and distribution of particles. UNFOLDED brings to the forefront a dialogue between particles role with space, consciousness, and wind; and points to particles as the foundation of a belief system, where the question is raised — can distribution of these infinite numbers of very small matter be the basis of existence and the reason for every single thing that happens to us, and outside of us? In it, there is a reflective quality of weather, how the fissuring of particles mirrors all communication flowing and scattering. Since every action causes a reaction, Markus Butkereit substantiates and affirms this law by showing how particles are broken up in the eye of a storm only to separate and spread to us. Like a tornado, chaos often ensues in the aftermath of disaster. The work distributes particles, which then moves with the wind.
