The exhibition RYXPER1126AE can be visited online between 24th of March and 26th of April, 2020 during our regular opening hours (all days, except Monday, from 4pm to 10pm) via this link.
The exhibition of Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė invites and isolates the visitors at the same time, leading them into zones of the in-between. In-between the space of the real and that of the online realm, in-between matter and information, nature and its rendered representation, narration and theory, individual and collective experiences. Central to the exhibition is a fragrance, which is a synthetic molecular replica, a volatile memory of the smell collected during one of the previous performances of the artists. The scent together with other elements in the exhibition – such as organic installation, a video generated with artificial intelligence, a sound installation and diverse objects – renders the abandoned gallery space an aberrant, organic but also austere speculative environment.
The show - that slipped to online platforms - is complemented by accompanying events, performance documentation, an online collective reading session in relation to the Young Girl Reading Group project of the artists ongoing since 2013 and to Trafó Gallery’s Hangover Reading Club series offering timely theoretical texts for discussion as well as a reader assembled by the artists.
