Alternative Exhibition Spaces and a Gecko

The change from a physical to online show has altered a lot of things. How will the work be represented when it was conceived to be experienced in person? Do I give priority to expressing underlying ideas or representing the work as faithfully as possible? These are just two of the many questions that have arisen during the process of transition.

Alternative forms of showing can give rise to many solutions. I came across this one in Hyperallergic about a woman creating a Art Gallery for her pet lizard. It is both hilarious and pertinent to how I am thinking about the online show. I am working with the idea of making videos that reproduce how the work might appear in an imagined physical setting (see this post).

The tone it takes is one of complete seriousness showing what you can do with a cardboard box, some paint and a lizard for critic.
