Sometimes Making Something Leads to Nothing takes its title from a work by the Belgian born artist Francis Alÿs. Sometimes Making Something Leads to Nothing takes its title from a work by the Belgian born artist Francis Alÿs. In his short film Paradox of Praxis I, the artist pushes a large block of ice through the streets of Mexico City: at . 5am he is battling with the traction of a huge weight, by lunchtime he is shuffling it with his feet, and at . 7pm all that remains is a small wet stain on the pavement. The theme of transformation, poetic by definition but also a little subversive, is central to Alÿs’s work and to that of all the artists that are gathered in this exhibition.
Paradox of Praxis 1 (1997) is the record of an action carried out under the rubric of sometimes making something leads to nothing. For more than nine hours, Alÿs pushed a block of ice through the streets of Mexico City until it completely melted. And so for hour after hour he struggled with the quintessentially Minimal rectangular block until finally it was reduced to no more than an ice cube suitable for a whisky on the rocks, so small that he could casually kick it along the street.
I’m also reminded of the first project I ever came across that introduced me to the world of dérive-inspired performance art and how it remains to be one of my favourite pieces today. Francis Alys’ Sometimes Making Something Leads to Nothing was shot in 1997 and involves the artist pushing an ice block through the streets of Mexico City until it melts into nothing. His task at the beginning is laborious and sisyphean, as he struggles to move the imposing weight along the pavement in what seems to be a futile performance
