WHAT REMAINS GALLERY ARCHIVES
with Calum Greaney
what remains gallery is an institution based around the refining of already consumed material of cultural and contemporary art production. Essentially the idea circles around the question “Does culture include material artifacts, and if so what impact can these artifacts have on an audience?”
The british curator Calum Greaney was invited to construct a library and archival-situation around this idea, as after five years of production, what remains gallery wanted to take an outside perspective on their already extensive and still growing collection of cultural material. Following discussions with the artists, he designed and curated the installation in attempt to dissect and analyse different elements of the idea. In effect he adopted the role of audience as artist, materializing an immaterial concept.
The work did not exist as an exhibition alone, but was used for talks and symposiums where the audience was able to experience the work osmotically in the peripherals.
For this exhibition there was released a publication which contains interviews with the Artists of what remains gallery, the Curator Calum Greaney, a speech of Michael Buhrs (Director of Museum Villa Stuck) and an article of Florian Mercker (MONOPOL).
