Sofie Thorsen's recent work evokes parallel complexity, exploring axonometry through wall drawings and panels in a series of "Screens Within Screens," 2014.
Axonometry was a revelation for modernist artists such as El Lissitzky because it transformed the way three-dimensional space could be translated onto a two-dimensional ground, placing infinity at the center of geometric projection, rather than at a vanishing point.
Such gestures recall the dizzying axonometry of El Lissitzky's publications, but if Lissitzky revealed the inescapably ideological nature of form while disrupting traditional readerly and perspectival orientation (as Yve-Alain Bois has shown) with distinctly revolutionary aims, Yokoo's psychedelic rotations take on a different valence.
