A PALLET is a flat transport structure that enables storage efficiencies and

increases stability while lifting or moving goods. The primary goal of LOGISTIC

MANAGEMENT is to minimize the use of resources used in a SUPPLY CHAIN,

in order to reduce the costs for the involved parties. LOGISTICS is further the

management, control and implementation of material, monetary and information

flows. It is the integration of PRODUCTION, PACKAGING, INVENTORY, TIME,


are the accessories of logistics: its tools, body parts, corpuscules, vessels.

Pallets are one of the ways in which the flow of global economy puts its mark on

reality, or rather, one of the ways in which it produces its reality-effects.

FOLDING is an act of laying one part over another to create a fold, crease or

pleat. The folding instructions tell us how to fold pieces of paper, yet the

possibility exists of unfolding, or folding otherwise. // THERE IS ALWAYS THE


prescriptions can be torn and disposed of. While materializing how binaries are

enforced on flesh, bodies and subjects, THE FOLD also points towards

elasticity, alternation, inflection, open-endedness, multiplicity, non-exclusivity

and infinity.

The heaviness of the word infinity, the lightness of the word paper, and the

combination of these concepts in the Light Weight plastic pallet (carrying goods

far heavier than its own weight) is a charged image. Pallets can be stacked on

top of each another, like matryoshka dolls – like leaves with their small creases –

one opening into the next. When exposed to heat, the plastic enters a state of

heightened porosity, a pond of matter, and it becomes possible to bend, twist,

stretch, fold.

What is presented are questions of    surface-depth      fragility      emptiness

materiality    visibility     disruption         fluidity      rigidity

The act or instance of circulating, of moving in a circuit, of flowing /

CIRCULATION. For example the continuous movement of blood through the

blood vessels or the transmission or passage of something (a commodity) from

place to place.Substances rushing through veins. Supply chains. Levels to

measure. Lines to follow.

A BODY is being examined by an EYE (constructed as the source of light and

clarity). The NAMING, CLASSIFICATION and EVALUATION of body parts in

relation to their accordance with qualitative precisions of femininity. The fiction

constructed by those names. A situation where “surface illusions” are to be

PENETRATED in order to discover the TRUTH about a body…making it

relinquish its hidden treasures.

THE FRUIT IS OPENED UP. And all of my peaches (are ruined)

The silence of the objects (PALLETS) mirrors the silent world of ENTRAILS –

their endless unseeing dreams. This tension between FLUIDITY AS

POSSIBILITY and FLUIDITY AS ENEMY speaks of a simultaneous

disenchanted rationalized arrangement and a speechless plastic divinity.

Like the land, the body had to be cultivated, and first of all broken up…
