Just Passing Through

On Thursday 21 July, from 6 to 11 pm, Fabrica opened its doors for Just Passing Through, an exhibition about shapes of extinction.

Tadao Ando's architecture becomes the stage for works made by 18 young international creatives at the end of their 6-month residency.

Through photography, video, sculpture, sound installation and performance, 18 artists reflect on extinction in all its forms and potentialities, always linking their reflections to their own experiences or non-human perspectives.

Site Into Sight

‘Site Into Sight’ explores the fragile relationship between Humans and the ‘Landscape’.

The artist constructs a space using flour (taken from the Earth) by pressing the material into a perfect (15cmx20cmx9cm) rectangle. The arrangement of the flour rectangles was dictated by Tadao Ando’s architecture.

By questioning the fragility of landscape/memory and place/space, the viewer can explore the meaning of ‘Landscape’. Is it something to be seen, touched or simply remembered?

Site Into Sight – research

A research document combining interviews, images and ideas surrounding landscape and memory. Throughout the 6 month residency at Fabrica, I collated over 100 pages of information to create my own archive of research.

Flour impressions

"In the flesh of the landscape all the stigmata of the past are impressed and endured. Landscape is a memory and I can interrogate it". – M. Corajoud in B. Cillo, 2008, p. 87W

The physical features of a landscape bear the scars of its history, and these marks persist over time. A landscape is a repository of memories, and I can explore its past by examining its physical characteristics. This quote by M. Corajoud highlights the idea that a landscape holds important clues about its past, and that by studying it, we can gain a deeper understanding of the history and culture of a place.

Truly, really, actually.

The collection of 4 weeks research into my personal practice. Gathering text and artist references from the likes of Hans-Peter Feldmann, Marcel Broodthaers, Chuck Berry, Danh Võ and Matt Mullican.

“Just remember, my accounts of actions I’ve experienced are the fourth generation of communication. First, it happened; second, I conceived what happened; third, I reproduced what I conceived; and fourth, you will conceive what I have reproduced.” – Chuck Berry
