Peter Downsbrough’s artistic practice focuses on subtle moments in the production of connections. His minimalist works relate linguistic, typographical, and graphic elements to the architecture of the respective exhibition space, creating geometries and rhythms that not only influence the perception of the space but also its underlying conditions and structure. Conjunctions such as AND, BUT, AS—syntactic tools that otherwise create connections between words, clauses, or entire sentences—in combination with prepositions, verbs, or other word classes, often form the departure point to make corners, edges, openings, closures, transparent and opaque surfaces as well as spatial transitions speak—both literally and figuratively.
