ISSUE 20 : Language That Performs
Swiss Choreographer Gilles Jobin and “Quantum”
May 14th, 2015Type: Residency
Author: Wu, Yi-hua Editor: Rikey Tenn
Note: "As the residential curator for NML, I want to explain how I distinguish different purposes of curating for the digital space and physical venue. In order to curate in a real exhibition space, the curator is asked to build up the utopian aesthetic dimensions which allow the artwork to speak by itself, hence strengthen the capacity to express itself. Eventually, the audience is expected to have the psychological connection and interaction with it. So the focus of considering the curatorial practice lies on the work. To curate for the visual space like NML, however, one must consider the curatorial practice by focusing on the artist, to grasp the individuality of the artist, and to disassemble of the symbols that are employed to form the conception of artwork. And it's what I try to do, to explain how artist articulate his choreography with its singular logic of creation, rather than the epistemological interpretation or metatheoretical review without understanding his creative process."
