A series of actions will take place outside the gallery space, in places such as the artists’ cities of residence or the locations where they happen to be during the length of the exhibition.

Documentation, as an element of authenticity and physical evidence of intangible actions, which are hard to grasp, is becoming increasingly inherent to artistic practice nowadays. Over the last decades there has been a shift to less visual and more experiential and intangible formats. The need to demonstrate the artistic fact (however brief it might be), contradicts the intangible nature of the action and incentives the duality of the document as evidence and as a work in itself.

The time of e-flux has heralded that we now consume art at a distance, in the way of anecdote, news, rumour. However, its inaccessibility is brought about not only by geographical bounds but by the nature of the work itself, since it happens in extra-artistic sites, or in the intimacy of a gesture hard to attend. The main interest of this project lies in that somewhere else where the actions/processes and their presence in space occur, in their ideal format according to the artist.
