Concurrently with his explorations on materiality and the dynamics of the artwork, FOS investigates language and the capacity of objects to contain and transmit meaning. Shapes and forms are used not only for their plastic qualities, but also for their role in the process of becoming symblols — from a shape, to a letter, to a word, to a specific significance and meaning. This becomes clear in his series "One Language Traveler" in which a diverse array of objects of different colors, shapes and materials are presented in a sort of archaeological display. These objects are part ruin, part sculpture and part of the abstract form of language invoked by the vitrine display. Other projects by the artist include compositions with functional elements like lamps, keys or benches, juxtaposed with more organic materials like wood, stones or cement.
The exhibition "Palimpsest — Hands Worn Smooth by Coins" offers a generous range of the artist’s recent practice and his interests in palimpsests — ancient manuscripts that were erased to preserve its surfaces for reuse and recycling. In this sense, the exhibition engages ideas of preservation, material language and archaeological aesthetics. The subtitle of the exhibition suggests a more playful and intimate side of the artist’s practice, a statement that triggers the image of an object designed for human use and the reciprocal effects of these textures in close contact. Another emblematic aspect of the artist’s practice included in the show is a site-specific pavilion that the artist has designed as a framework and substrate for the artwork to exist in the gallery. The pavilion acts as a membrane that creates spaces of contemplation for individual works, as well as visibly interweaving artwork with space and viewers — a premeditated choreography.
