What Remains, Encounter, London
Appearing at a critical moment for artists and audiences in the wake of the latest Covid-19 lockdown, ‘What Remains’ brought together eleven institutionally acclaimed international artists for the first time.
The exhibition reflects on what remains and what is lost in a rapidly changing, and uneven world. Concerned with contemporary archeology and precarious temporalities, the exhibited artists negotiate the borders between imagination, memory and artistic reproduction from varied cultural standpoints. Navigating a fault line between image formation and deconstruction, accumulation and erasure, the displayed works inhabit an unstable space somewhere between figuration and abstraction. Often crossing boundaries between mediums, the artists engage these issues through complex and innovative material practices.
