��eave ��f ��bsence is a new kind of self sustainable art space that exists to explore the relationship between art works and viewers in an age of dematerialised culture and transient movement.
LOA is hidden inside a private gated courtyard off Dalston Lane. A small space with limited opening hours to the public. Each exhibiting artist will be asked to nominate three artists to consider making work for the space. One who they know of in person, one who they do not and one that does not have the right to live and work in the UK. These artists will then go on to make their own nominations, creating a hyperbolic network of connected ideas.
In a time in which the relationship between viewers and the visual arts has evolved through the screens we hold; in which our legal existence in an imagined community is determined by the passport we are born with, LOA is interested in speaking the language of now to discuss the future of international emerging artists as well as a way that art could live past its material forms.
