Stefanos Tsivopoulos: Borrowed Knowledge

DISCUSSION with Stefanos Tsivopoulos and Alfredo Cramerotti (Director, Mostyn, Wales) 
Tuesday, October 4, 6:30pm

Wednesday – Saturday, 12-6pm

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is pleased to announce the second show in its inaugural series of solo exhibitions. Borrowed Knowledge is a poetic investigation into memory and imagination by ISCP artist-in-residence Stefanos Tsivopoulos. In 2011, ISCP launched an annual initiative to offer three ISCP residents and one ISCP alum the space, time and challenge to produce new works and to engage with the context of their presentation.

Borrowed Knowledge is a show in two parts: The Blind Image and The Public Library of Borrowed Knowledge. The show takes as its starting point an investigation into the construction of visual history and its relation to images and history’s claim to truth through two multifaceted works. The Blind Image  brings together the film Amnesialand (2010), the artist’s most recent film Blind Image, a series of photos and display of books. The Public Library of Borrowed Knowledge will attempt to open up a participatory dialogue relating to the idea of knowledge production and cultural translation, initiating a collective working process for subsequent presentations.
