Penumbra
Over the project’s 8-day duration, 8 artists will present new works in the project space. Unlike many group exhibitions, this time, each artist will take over the space for one assigned day, making it into a temporary studio and hence playing a more active decision-making role. Instead of bringing pre-made and appointed works to hang or place in a gallery space, they will run the project autonomously by engaging physically and artistically with what has accumulated before them in the space.

The project’s alternative format focuses on the nature of open-ended and performative practices. The artists will present a series of visual statement, communication, annotation and work in progress by dealing with the other artists’ works, which are mostly new to them. These artistic and critical practices attempt to resist easy categorisation and avoid art making that complies with an imposed theme or spatial arrangement as with some curated group exhibitions. The diverse and accumulated artistic perspectives of the 8 artists will open up some thoughts beyond exclusive and reductive discourses on contemporary art.

The 8-day project with 8 artists, ending in a group exhibition, will show the possibility of presentation with the penumbra of indeterminacy and open-endedness. The project ‘Penumbra’ will open up a platform for investigating and questioning ideas around authorship, art making, autonomy, and presentation within the system of contemporary art exhibition.
