About

The Arca Project is an exhibition consisting of 16 visual and 16 textual responses to one single image. The image (a black-and-white photo of a chip shop) worked as a starting point for the writers who were asked to use it as the inspiration for a piece of writing of any length. The only limitation was the uniform paper orientation and size. The artists had the same limitations but would create an artwork directly over the image. The finished responses are displayed as diptychs; one textual and one visual. The recurrence of this single image offers many interpretations. All are fictitious. It is a game of false interpretations. The idea is to have artists and writers in a disorientating Sebaldian mix of fact and fiction, documentary and reality. Each response has been realised as a limited edition print.
