Independent curator Talia Smith examines multiple definitions of space in her mini exhibition, ‘We carve our desires in the air’. Taking a cue from Gilbert & George’s ‘A Guide to Singing Sculpture’, the exhibition delves into the Kaldor Public Art Projects archive to investigate what space can mean to a longstanding organisation that works with both the physical and metaphorical readings of space, and asks whether the digital archive might offer up a further definition of space.
Looking at objects, photographs and other ephemera from projects by George & Gilbert, Tatzu Nishi, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Jonathan Jones, Simon Fujiwara, Allora & Calzadilla, Richard Long, Marina Abramović and Latai Taumoepeau, this exhibition asserts the importance of multiple perspectives of space. Indigenising space, actions for moving a body, the measurements of a light, creating an intervention are some of the ways in which these artists engage with space.
Talia Smith’s online exhibition was commissioned as part of Future Curators, a creative learning program giving secondary students across NSW the opportunity to connect with experienced curators and to activate the Kaldor Public Art Projects archive.
