This exhibition is in an attempt to free curatorship from conventions by shifting roles and practices, playfully exploring the identity of the “artist-curator”. Curators appropriate artistic strategies and artist integrate curatorial elements, making it increasingly indistinguishable between artist and curator. This exhibition embraces this trend and asks curators to pair in groups of two to produce artworks for partner’s curation and vice versa, such that each participant is as much a curator as they are an artist. By easing themselves of the responsibility to offer transcendental experiences, curators become each others’s mirrors, facing their own identity crisis, asking fundamental questions – thus expelling doubts and scratching the unspoken need to destabilise manifests.
