Exhibiting the un-exhibitable / Like a Walk in a Park
Curator Chialing Chu and artist Linda Vigdorcika collaborated with the aim of exhibiting the un- exhibitable. Based on a performance (Like a Walk in a Park) made by artist Vigdorcika in Richmond Park in January 2015, the display invites discourse on the possibility of reviving artwork that can only be presented in a specific environment and occasion. By recreating the natural environment in the gallery space, this exhibition aims to provide visitors with different readings of the artwork created in a different media. The concept of exhibiting the un-exhibitable is strengthened by the six- meter tall reconstructed tree installation that can barely fit in the gallery space, alongside the documentary video of the performance.
