At front, it's the space of two art pieces with the warm light atmosphere of doubt. I hadn't been able to figure out in that space. Until I walked through to the main space where the clear roof opened for the natural light, all the curiosity was resolved here. Perhaps the light was the matter of sense. More moulds of trees lied down, while the casted plasters were on the metal shelves. There were some photographs showing the casting process and the place it happened. The connection between each piece and of what they were suddenly revealed. The only addition apart from the art pieces were the metal stands which historically involved with the artist's reference, and the plinths which were already familiar in the exhibition context. A separated room or a "secret room", I like to call it like that as I explained the rationale in the entry of this exhibition, contained a number of pieces of the opposite process of documenting the ancient. The only one object here, surrounded by its imprint on the cotton paper, was at the central position as if it had become the world where there were the satellites orbiting. From this view of the installation, I could deduce what was happening between the prints and the object. Rather than being the moulds wrapped around the miniature like the pieces in the main room, the sheets on the wall must be bared flat to be rolled on by the dimensional. The curating way was really understandable for me.
I got an idea that if my curating event is more like an Open Day than an exhibition, I like to combine it with when I made use of the studio's assets, such as the tables, a pinned board, stools and wooden boards, as I explained in the previous entry Year 2 Curating 04, and avoid to use other unnecessarily exotic additions as in the exhibition.
Some thoughts I have been thinking of:
- the physical pieces should be able to stand by themselves or rely on the studio's interior
- the studio's "secret room" is now for the pieces that need to be shown in the dark, so all the similar aspect should be organised there
- the front space should be able to intrigue the viewers at first glance, and try adjusting the lights
- look for the prominent part of the interior (maybe the main pillar) and a resolved piece that relates to the rest
- keep the theme "open" to make more sense the digital process behind the screen
