In A Proposal for A Permanent Fixture at Ark Galerie in Two Editions: Superlight, Melbourne-based Indonesian artist, Ardi Gunawan duplicates the mezzanine floor of Ark Galerie and creates an exact replica of his earlier work, Superlight. Superlight is a sculptural work that consists of an assemblage of detritus that Ardi had selected according to distinct categories. For Ardi, this act of categorizing is important as it emphasizes art practice as a staged practice that is built according to specific parameters, rather than arising from the artist's intuition alone.
