Venice - Exhibition

In The Reading Room of Hell

A plus A

24 Feb 201815 May 2018

The exhibition is organized with NOVEL, an itinerant curatorial platform devised by Alun Rowlands and Matt Williams that draws together artists writing, texts and poetry that oscillate between modes of fiction and criticism. A cacophony of voices, that is the primary condition of writing, seek to break the habitual methods of representation and productions of subjectivity.

The exhibition at Aplus A, Venice is the loci for reading, with artworks and related films that augment the fictioning of a scenario. This scenography is the summation of multiple experiences and anxieties that demands new forms of critical fiction. This scenario requires an active protagonist, a polymath who can amalgamate sources with fluency. Fiction is not made up, it is based on everything we can learn or use; a space in which all sources of knowledge are valid.

On view are works by: Eileen Agar | Jean-Marie Appriou | Ben Clement | Alastair Mackinven | Agnes Moraux | Julien Nguyen | Henrik Olesen | Claire Potter | Patrick Procktor | Luiz Roque | Simon Thompson | Elaine Cameron-Weir | amongst others.
