The discussion by the New York-based artist on how the documentation of an exhibition can be more real than the original is a part of a series on the matter titled, L’Exposition Imaginaire and will be running on from its April 27 start to June 26.
How do exhibition venues deal with imaginary exhibitions, where imagination is the form of the show as well as its location?
Vierkant recently showed solo show Profile at Paris’ New Galerie, which examined and imagined the objectivisation of a human subject, one who has renounced all their rights, and abandoned their image. The upcoming talk might feature this understanding on loss and leaving things behind.
