“She sees the shadows… she even counts the tree-trunks along a promenade by the shadows, but sees nothing of the shape of things.”(1)

In 1886, a 22-year-old woman in Lyon saw the world around her for the first time. Objects instantly recognisable by touch were hard to distinguish with her new sight, and shadows appeared more concrete than solid forms. Her doctors described the sudden strangeness of familiar environments, and her singular experience of the world as a newly-sighted person.

In his 1932 book Space and Sight, Marius Von Senden collated the patient’s experiences alongside testimonies of similar cases dating from 1020 to the present. These captivating accounts, which later inspired writers including Maggie Nelson and Annie Dillard, express how something familiar can show a previously unacknowledged beauty when seen in a new way.

She sees the shadows is a group exhibition of works from the David Roberts Collection that resonate with the ideas found in Space and Sight. Each artist has re-conceived day-to-day objects and materials in unexpected ways—a bench, plug socket, grate, section of railing or broom—inviting viewers to see alternative qualities and narratives therein.

Each of the works in a collection, like the testimonies compiled by Von Senden, speak of personal experiences and moments. She sees the shadows is accompanied by a new publication with responses to the project from writers Orit Gat, Claire Potter and Sally O’Reilly and artists David Birkin, Jason Dodge, Marine Hugonnier, Marlie Mul, Magali Reus and Douglas White.

In Addition

Participating artists from July 2018:
Nina Beier, Sol Calero, Gabriele de Santis, Alek O., Jonathan Monk, Simon Dybbroe Møller and Marinella Senatore
Gallery 2

Each participating artist has produced work using paper and has been asked to reconsider the traditional model of producing an edition, where each version of a work is identical. Although appearing formally similar, each In Addition piece will offer deviations and nuances that set apart each edition as a unique work, thereby playing with ideas of the original, the copy and work made in series.

In Addition is permanently installed as an exhibition in MOSTYN’s Gallery 2, and will change shape over time as editions are purchased and as further artists participate in the future. MOSTYN is a charity registered in the UK and proceeds from the sales of the editions will be invested back into the gallery’s exhibition and engagement programme.

“I Told You So” Conference in Amsterdam, Friday 16th March 2012. Part of WE ARE THE TIME week-conference festival

Friday March 16  
I TOLD YOU SO
Curator Alfredo Cramerotti asks what the relationship between gossip and the history books is. Or between a general election and eternity.

In response Cathy Haynes explores the improbabilities of temporal cartography; Tai Shani presents ‘registers’ of representation and an over-identifying actress. Sally O’Reilly demonstrates the alien nature of historical speeches and Fay Nicolson digs up un-archived legacies of art education. The day ends with a final concert of the Chicago Boys While We Were Singing They Were Dreaming at the F.I.R.E.I.N.C.A.I.R.O. radio station (in the Rietveld Academie’s Glass Pavilion).

Life experience is always generated as the intersection between the personal rhythm of one’s life and the larger societal perspective. How do we position ourselves in time? How do we weave the historical moment into our life-narratives? From Tahrir Square to Occupy Wall Street – we are witnessing a worldwide desire for transition, but its direction is still open.This momentum belongs to the youngest generation of artists who will contribute to it with their work and shape it with the way they form fleeting communities. The network condition we live in, offers unprecedented possibilities to have simultaneous and multiple perspectives on events with social and historical significance. This implies a very different mode of historicizing, of writing down our memories. It is in this vortex of eventfulness we have to find ourselves again.
