Suppose a Room (2022)

picture
drawing by Mette Edvardsen

Suppose a Room is a live, performative, one-day exhibition that brings together materials from performances, objects, and gestures. Summoning the spaces and materials from past works, Suppose a Room relies on them to open up new spaces and imaginations. Ideas are not isolated, they come out of a process and stand in tension with each other—continuing also implies revisiting materials. Rather than showing an overview, the exhibition enters inside certain details, aspects, and moments to let the material speak and write itself back into the space. This work was specifically conceived for Amant.
