Families of Objects
What happens when you bring together 10,000 files stolen from hacked computers, commissioned photographs taken by former employees of a bankrupt factory in the Czech Republic, a collection of memories blurring the line between subjectivity and objective evidence, arts & crafts projects secretly completed on company time, the colorful materialization of waste, and a mysterious artifact that survives only in words?We’re not quite sure.
Participating artists are Ben Thorp Brown (United States), Lamia Joreige (Lebanon), Jana Kapelova (Slovakia), Marco Andrea Magni (Italy), Eva & Franco Mattes (Italy), and Jirí Skala (Czech Republic).
The show, curated by Marco Antonini (Italy/USA), will also activate a number of protocols from RICHARD, an ever-expanding online catalogue of readymade ideas, images, and objects.
The exhibition will premiere at 7pm on June 5th at Réunion before traveling to the Abrons Arts Center in New York. Explore the event on Facebook.
The show will also be open on June 6th from 2pm – 8pm.
The image used for the announcement of the exhibition is one of the 10,000 photos stolen from personal computers by Eva and Franco Mattes.
