odkuda / form from
This project aims to continually “re-construct” the viewer by establishing an (interactive) communication between the individual exhibitors featured at the gallery with the present contexts, configurations and materialities.
All works embody the strategy to precisely and conceptually localise the viewer; or the attempt of accurately positioning a trace (found in a particular database) as a blueprint for its materialisation. In this way, the interaction between the individual artists, together with the interaction between their respective works (positioned in space by observing communicational processes), could be defined as an exchange of logical frameworks between two or more models.
Having in mind that the exhibition space is located in former barracks (the building of the IV regiment barracks), and as such contains undiminished traces of the disciplinary institution that it was, we can draw the following conclusion:
It is possible to put up an exhibition so that the trajectories of the individual artworks’ realisations ‘align’ or ‘conjoin’ with the trajectories of the disciplinary institution turned exhibition space.
The working hypothesis of the exhibition is: Affect is difference.
