The

Europa

TRIANGLE

 

Group exhibition at the Royal College of Art Dyson Galleries as part of the Goethe Insitut's 'Europe (to the power of) N' research and exhibition project.

A curated group exhibition using the 'dumb' curatorial conceit of 'similarity' by showing works with Triangles in them. The simplicity was a deliberate way to bring in highly divergent art practices, discussing equally divergent cultural themes relevant to Europe's socio-political fabric at the time.

 

The choice of the triangle was based on the multitude of models within different fields to represent key inter-relations between distinct areas of concern, often in contrast or antagonism to one another. For instance the use of the triangle to represent ideal forms of governance in both heirarchical and grass-roots organisations. In this way it reflected how we try to find sense and make whole the complexity of contemporary deomcratic situations, particularly one with as convoluted in its history and contemporary politics as the concept of a 'Europe'.

 

A publication followed the show with an essay following the 'conspiracy theory' model of similitude that informed the selection of works in the show, a flight of images and texts in which the triangle played a role in their articulation.
