MADC Museo de Arte y Diseno contemporano, San Jose (Costa Rica) , 08/01/21 - 08/01/21
Exhibition: Johan Phillips: OtrosOjos
Questions of documentation, registration as well as how these are represented and who gets access to such objects is the focus of this exhibition, curated by Marga Sequeira.
In this exhibition a game is created, focusing on what hides and reveals the necessity to create a document to preserve an event. The document, is usually referred to an “official” representation, yet this is nothing more than a mediation exercise. The form and selection of mediation are determined by someone, who will make it permanent and fixate it. The reduction of multiple pairs of eyes that witness an event and the multiple lenses that capture it, which in the end are reduced to only one final image.
