Art of the Possible. A Case Study of Curatorial Practic
The current exhibition at Lund Konsthall, featuring Miriam Bäckström (Sweden), Ion Grigorescu (Romania), Arturas Raila (Lithuania) and the Raqs Maedia Collective (India) looks at different ideas of ’the possbile’. What is possible in art? Is anything impossible? Loosely based on on the philospohy of Henri Bergson (1859-1941), ’Art of the Possible’ may be seen as a ’report’ on my theoretical research on curatorial practice. The ’operational’ concepts of articulation, illustration, self-reflection and speculation are crucial to the practice of the participating artists and to the exhibition.
