Now objects perceive me - Paul Klee
The exhibition departs from Untitled-Construction, a 1956 mixed media painting on canvas. The non-figurative, concrete painting by Lolo Soldevilla will be on loan from a collector for the exhibition. Each of the fourteen participating artists were made aware of the painting as the exhibition’s origin at the inception of the curatorial process. The relevance of the dialogue and how it may affect the present rather than how it has affected the past is at stake.By overcoming the tension between process-based production and by asking artists to respond to a specific work in a conditioned manner Restage proposes to relate art practices as a form of social dynamics.
Restage examines how it might be possible to introduce transformative elements that challenge the notion of a fixed or definitive artwork grounded on one location. It explores the possibility of a dynamic exhibition environment by including artworks from various artists mapping different positions.
