17 day long exhibition marathon created at a two month residency programme during Milan Art Week & Salone del Mobile.
Kitty Maria and Alban Karsten engaged in an on-going marathon of daily build-ups and nightly openings with an opening talk in their Daily Solo Show in M^C^O, Milan. Introducing all participating artists of the residency with a solo show lasting the duration of one opening: from the 1st till the 17th of April 2016.
After establishing the framework, Karsten and Maria invited residency peers to join and write a one-day-solo-show-proposal. A shape-shifting exhibition space was created that was solely designed on the act of opening – hinged on every corner the space could take any desired shape, and with white walls made of roller blinds that could open or close partially or fully at any desired moment.
Turning the art of exhibition making into a day-to-day labor as a protocol against lethargy and an attempt to investigate and defy the process of exhaustion.
Dimensions: 300 x 300 x 300 cm (exhibition space; flexible sizes)
Materials: construction beams, roller-blinds, lacquer, hinges
Made possible by The Wandering School & M^C^O, Milan.
