Collaboration Between Finesse Architecture and Visual Artist Marianne Lammersen

“Beyond the Pale”

For ‘Beyond the pale’, architect Jack Chen (Finesse Architecture) and artist Marianne Lammersen produced sculptural works in tandem that interrogate our human tendency to follow paths and conventions towards ‘successful’ conclusions. They question whether these grids, networks and norms – our own inventions – always lead to human progress, and ask the viewer to wander away from predictable paths, perhaps to stumble upon wonders they never suspected, and be surprised by what lies outside the grid… beyond the pale.
