“But for the present age, which prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, representation to reality, appearance to essence…. truth is considered profane, and only illusion is sacred.”
Pain after Pane is an exploration of ideas around the language of objects, structures of value and the notion of the spectacle. Exploring the in-between and real/unreal spaces we live in, Abel Shah is interested in the window as a space that represents the desire of things in a physical and virtual world and the relationship to our bodies as both containers of desire and “objects” of display.
“They stare in timeless wonderment through shop windows. Enraptured. Entranced. Enlightened.
Pain after pane after pane…. the glass fragments continue down the street…”
