About

Online magazine POSTmatter is invited to produce an exhibition and a publication taking place in the physical premises at ICA Studio and on the digital platform activated by POSTmatter editor-in-chief Louise Benson. Through embracing the daily production of content on the dichotomy of nature and its digitalisation as artifice, and inviting a large set of contributors ranging from artists to writers, curators and theorists, Benson opens the ground for interrogation, evaluation and production. Evoking an aesthetic akin to Marcel Broodthaer’s seminal work ‘Jardin d’Hivers’(1974), the exhibition set-up will be composed of artworks and pot plants that are placed in various configurations. The gesture of borrowing representations from a natural surrounding acts as a trigger to further the thematic investigation on environment and digital landscape. The setting for ideas include works by Emma Charles, Mark Dorf, Jacob Kierkegaard, Clement Valla, among others. Accumulating immediate and recently composed responses to the aforementioned theme, the week long project takes on a strong digital dimension. The project includes essays written within an hour limit by artists and writers, web-chats between contributing artists and selected writers and curators, artist contributions for the online publishing platform on the POSTmatter website and a live event at fig-2 that will generate a communal text composed by five writers, thinkers and curators on Thursday evening.
