Tolia’s work takes over, expands and incorporates the gallery space into itself. The visitor is also subsumed, becoming yet another element framed by the proliferating, unreasonable architecture.






“Building elements in Tolia’s installation become signifiers of both what they are, and what undoes them, their assembly and their dismantling. She describes the work as "some kind of unfinished building, but at the same time, ruined… It’s just started to be built but it’s already old.”
