Con­s­truc­tion Frame is an instal­la­ti­on deve­lo­ped from a series of images taken through the struc­tu­ral frame­works of unfi­nis­hed buildings.
Shot on slide film and pro­jec­ted for the instal­la­ti­on, the light shi­ning through the image echo­es the land­scape cap­tu­red through the buil­dings. The slides use the archi­tec­tu­ral ske­le­tons as a frame for the land­scape, imi­ta­ting the camera’s crop. Repe­ti­ti­ve and homo­ge­nous, the buil­dings’ struc­tures begin to redu­ce into geo­me­tric shapes, mer­ging into sculp­tu­ral meta­phy­si­cal forms.
Com­bi­ned in a two-chan­nel pro­jec­tion, the instal­la­ti­on of the work com­pa­res and con­trasts simi­lar images, as the slides flow from one loca­ti­on into ano­ther. Cen­tral to the work are ide­as of still­ness and flux. Taken in Cala­b­ria, Sou­thern Ita­ly, the series reflects on the con­tem­po­ra­ry ruins of Wes­tern Euro­pe as a per­ma­nent and inte­gra­ted part of the land­scape. The buil­dings lie unoc­cu­p­ied as a con­se­quence of eco­no­mic standstill. This still­ness is deve­lo­ped through the mate­ria­li­ty of the work and the emer­gence of sculp­tu­ral structures.
Rogers’ work focu­ses on the decon­s­truc­tion of archi­tec­tu­ral inte­ri­ors. In her images and instal­la­ti­ons, she cap­tures emp­ty or aban­do­ned spaces, whe­re human life is no lon­ger pre­sent. Using a repe­ti­ti­on of for­mal ele­ments, her work crea­tes a fee­ling of the estran­ged in the ordi­na­ry. The under­ly­ing the­me of the work is influen­ced by a wider inte­rest in glo­bal forces, par­ti­cu­lar­ly economics.
