À la recherche (in search of practice-based research)
Group exhibition curated by Barbara Balfour

The working title of the show À la recherche (in search of practice-based research), suggests a call in honour of research, as something to be celebrated, and also alludes to the title of Marcel Proust’s novel À la recherche du temps perdu. Etymologically, there is a sense of “search” within “research,” which curator Barbara Balfour is keeping in mind in undertaking this curatorial project. Research has been at the heart of Balfour’s practice for many years, but she has also been thinking about it in a more concerted fashion lately, in terms of the notion of “practice-based research.”

Dana Tosic: Artifacts

In a new series of screenprints, Dana Tosic investigates possibilities of capturing the human body in motion using one reprographic technology (3D scan) to capture a moment in time, executed in another (screen print). The images depicted portray glimpses of quotidian activities and gestures captured using a continuous 360-degree, 3D scan of a single motion. The resulting images reveal bodies in a liminal state – neither in their original position, nor having completed their transformation into another, they are caught between moments, revealing a three-dimensional, virtual trace of the activity.
