This was a treat; SecMoCo had the opportunity to work with Martin Clark and Steven Claydon again on the documentation for an exhibition, the themes and implications of which both had been formulating and discussing for a number of years.The design itself saw many changes, with on-going conceptual and formal reappraisal, ending up with a rigorous, thorough-going, appropriate solution.
From the gallery:
‘The Noing Uv It’ is an exhibition about objects and their image, matter and its memory, and the revealed and concealed nature of “things.” Addressing the possibility of a latent primitive consciousness in materials, it includes work by over 30 international artists, as well as a number of other objects, technologies and artefacts.
Curated by Martin Clark and Steven Claydon.
