About the Place Relations Exhibition
The import of location in place-based artworks represents a set of relations that become visible as they are affected or reconfigured. The artists in this exhibition explore the potential of public space, geographic territory, architectural location, social relations, online informational media, and virtual 3D worlds to form situational works. Their methods include participatory performance, field documentation, new media interactivity and mixed media installation. Results emerge as a hybrid reading of community venture, memory map, psychogeographic inquiry and information aesthetics. The works are situational in revealing the conditions or potential of place. They appear momentarily, as a shift in the relations of everything that blends into city life, distant landscape, or the event-stream of global digital space.
