WEDNESDAY JANUARY 18, 1989 – SUNDAY FEBRUARY 12, 1989 The Norwegian artist Bente Stokke’s choice of material is ash from a combustion plant. He wrote: “my motive for working / lies in the uncovering / of a space / which reveals itself / in shifts and layers of reality.” Stokke’s installations emerged from a found space and the idea that history is concealed in it. At Storefront, Stokke’s approach resulted in The Ship, a dramatic reappraisal of the gallery’s iconic wedge form....

The structure of the missile silo itself reveals that it is a product of a curious, inverted   reasoning: the silo is thickest at its top, becoming thinner as it goes deeper into the earth. Yet we know that all structures built in the earth's gravity, even those underground, endure the greatest stresses at their bottoms. It is only the fear of attack from above that justifies this unusual manner of building. And so the peculiar inversion again becomes evident--the sky, the source of...
