Circular Projection

A circle is created by each participant choosing a picture, which is projected onto another artists installation/work. The chosen picture should incorporate and build a relation with the work it is projected on. And the decision of who to project on is made in a circular but random order. The curating consisted in creating a circular flux between the artworks during the exhibition.

In a random order, a first person chooses a space and an image/video, he/she thinks is fitting the next person in the chains. This next person will exhibit at that spot and the image/video will be projected on his/her space. Then this person chooses a space and an image/video, he/she thinks is fitting the next person in the chain. This next person will exhibit at that spot and the image/video will be projected on his/her space… and so on until the circle goes back to the first person.

Circular Projection was used for the exhibition: Learning to Sea at Retort Artspace, Amsterdam.

The video projections became a new starting point for each of us to work with. In this way we reflected on each others works in a very democratic way and gave each other a possibility of seeing our work in a new light, with a new approach, starting point and context. During the exhibition the space was lit only by the projections. In addition to the exhibition we made a small publication consisting of inspitrational material such as images and text, mainly found archive and research material.
