Following her residency at WIELS in 2016, Norwegian artist Ane Mette Hol pursues her research work focusing on the concepts of original and reproduction and invites Michael Kargl and Franz Thalmair, who run the project originalcopy,to present their ongoing, collective research in the WIELS Project Room.
”, ”, ”, — Footnotes is the third in a series of experimentally-designed exhibition formats. The show traces the act of copying as an omnipresent yet often invisible artistic practice at the intersection of the digital realm and the analog world.
The exhibition serves as a test setting and working model for a re-evaluation of the dichotomy of 'original' and 'copy' from a post-digital perspective. Despite its culminating character as the third in a row of three events, the exhibition ”, ”, ”, — Footnotes is only conceived as a temporary manifestation, one in a series of possible manifestation forms.
With three openings on three consecutive evenings, resulting in three modulated and reformulated exhibitions, the aim of this public reflection upon methodology is to define a realm of thought where current practices of copying are collected and presented, and where their modalities can be analyzed by subjecting the copy itself to the act of copying.
Participants: Sebastian Gärtner, Ane Mette Hol, Wouter Huis, Joséphine Kaeppelin, Michael Kargl, Nika Kupyrova, Willem Oorebeek, Lisa Rastl, Stefan Riebel
